This Indoor Train Park Hiding Near Buffalo Proves There’s Still A Kid In All Of Us
Whether you’re looking for an indoor activity on a chilly day or a way to beat the heat on a sunny one, we’ve found an awesome spot that everyone will love, no matter your age! Located less than an hour away from Buffalo, all it takes is a scenic car ride through Western New York to make your way to one of the country’s most charming attractions.
Head over to the small town of Medina to check out the wonderful Medina Railroad Museum.
Home to one of the country's largest model train displays, it'll take you less than an hour to reach this epic attraction up in Orleans County.
Visitors to the museum will have nostalgia pulling on their heartstrings as soon as they set their sights on the enormous train display.
Within the 200-foot-long and 14-foot-wide display, you'll see a seemingly endless amount of model trains, many of which actively moving along the tracks.
As you are walking around the display, be sure to pay attention to every bit of detail - you may just see a familiar landmark or two!
The museum has been growing in size since the display was first built in 18 years ago, and you'll feel just like a kid again as you surround yourself with all of these trains.
There's more to just the museum than just the model train display; the walls are also lined all sorts of fascinating pieces of local history.
From old train conductor hats to antique train lights and local signs...
…to toy trains and other memorabilia that may even resemble some of the things you have stashed away in your attic, it's always a good time to stop and look at everything under the roof of this museum.
Something else that might also make your head turn? The gigantic pickle hanging on the wall, reminding us all that the Heinz Pickle Factory once operated in this area of New York.
Open all throughout the year, come and spend the day enjoying all that the Medina Railroad Museum has to offer.
If you pop over to Medina that spring, Thomas the Tank Engine will be making a special stop that your little ones will love! The Steam Team Tour will pass through Medina on May 17th, 18th, and 19th for the Day Out With Thomas event. Don’t miss it!
The Medina Railroad Museum is located at 530 West Ave., Medina, NY 14103 and is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and. To find out more about the museum, train rides, and events, visit its website
