The exhibits cover more than 6000 square feet of indoor space. They even have a small train that gives rides during open houses. The museum has been around for nearly 20 years and is remembered from its days in the Foothills Mall. The museum’s gift shop has souvenirs for visitors, as well as a large selection of model trains and hobby supplies
This is a must-see when in Tucson. The museum also hosts several community events each year including a Polar Express event, train shows, and birthday parties. You can even rent out the museum for weddings.
