I took my nephew here on Free museum day. I took him up to one of the docents dressed as a conductor, and asked who he was. My 4-year-old nephew told me, "That's a pirate!" The docent agreed with him! It was hilarious. The staff here is so friendly, and they are great with little kids, especially if they have a short attention span like my nephew. His favorite part is the train table where you can play with Thomas the Train toys.
