Where else to have a toy train museum, but Strasburg, PA? The Train Collectors Association, dedicated to the preservation and history of toy trains, operates this great museum so that everyone can enjoy a hobby which is practically an American tradition.

It is impossible to turn in this museum without seeing wall displays featuring hundreds of locomotives and cars of all descriptions. Rare, unusual, and specialty trains will be found in all gauges.

Visitors can enjoy a continuously running Video Presentation that is both fun and educational. A pushbutton control operates miniature railroad equipment on five huge layouts.

Groups (20 or more) are welcome, too, and the Museum offers an educational Guided Tour for School Groups of all grade levels. The program explores the history of toy train making in the United States.
