  • Excellent, helpful staff, various opportunities to have fun, from 3 to 103 yo. Turntable, garden railway, models with running trains and outstanding detail, etc. Cool, fun for a morning/afternoon, or if you are really into railways, a whole day. Nice restaurant and buffet, too.
  • Really nice railway museum. I was there with a train lover and he loved it! It is obviously nice taken care of. It is a good place for kids too.
