We went for the Thomas special event, not sure if thats all the time or just specific times, but my son who loves trains had a blast.. little boring for older kids though.

Great day spent at this museum for young and old. There was a bit of walking, but lots to keep us busy too riding, climbing on, and learning about the different trains.

We stopped by during the time they had Thomas the Train. The kids had a blast. They had a lot of different activities going on including model train sets, and magic shows throughout the day. The kids' favorite part was being able to ride the train being pulled by Thomas himself!

They had numerous food vendors with typical festival type fare like hot dogs, pizza, etc. And also a gift shop where you could buy souvenirs. Overall it was a fun family trip and would recommend it to anyone with a Thomas the Train fan in the family!
