I visited Railtown 1897 State Historic Park with a friend on Easter Sunday. They were holding Easter Egg Hunts with the Easter Bunny, so the place was understandably quite full with families and children.
We expected to take a quick walk around the park, and be done. But we learned that there was a walking tour leaving soon that was included with our admission, so we joined it, and I'm delighted that we did. Our guide was incredibly thorough, and provided tons of technical and historic information. He also let us pick up and try out the old tools and explore the blacksmith shop, which was fascinating.
I understand why this park is popular with families, but I also want to advocate for adults to visit if you have the slightest interest in trains or in the ingenuity required to build a railway in the wild west.
