A beautiful place in the heart of my favorite city. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The place is clean and well kept. Perfect for anyone who loves trains or just being outside on nice days. I went there frequently as a kid and I volunteer there sometimes with my brother. Check it out if you're in town!

I love this place! I've been part of it for 30 plus years. Lots of trains and history of railroading in Wichita and Kansas. Highly recommended to this museum to anyone with children and people with an interest in trains.
