  • Travel town was fun in the 70's. It's a wreck now. All the locos and cars are in a state of decay. Spider webs over everything. Can't go into any cars anymore except one loco. Feral cats and skunks inhabit the area. The museum that had cars, fire trucks and models seems to no longer exist. They should close it.
  • The staff could be more friendly. They have great artwork!! I think this place is fairly big. I really wanted to go into the infinity room but unfortunately the line was super long... 2 and half hour wait... it too long for me so I didn't get the chance to go. They also have a cute gift shop where they sell all art stuff which were interesting.
