This Indoor Train Park Hiding In West Virginia Proves There’s Still A Kid In All Of Us
When things are cold and chilly here in the Mountain State or we’re preparing to deal with a rainy day, there’s no better thing to do than to find the ultimate indoor hangout spot to keep you occupied. In the delightful city of Wheeling, you can head inside a locally-known landmark to enjoy a museum that will absolutely make you feel like a kid again. If you’re ready to make the most out of your afternoon, then see why we love this indoor train park so much!
Hiding in plain sight, the Kruger Street Toy & Train Museum is housed inside the town's old public school on Kruger Street.
While the school's beautiful exterior hasn't changed over the years, the inside of this building is now something quite different from what it used to be!
An amazing place to take the entire family, people from all around West Virginia visit the train museum to get a dose of nostalgia.
While the museum is made up of many rooms...
...you'll find the main star of the museum to be all of the amazing train sets that are on display!
If you happen to be traveling with visitors who aren't as over-the-moon for trains as you are, there are still plenty of other rooms and interactive exhibits to enjoy.
For starters, you'll want to keep an eye out for the darling museum resident cat Loo who's known to be quite the charmer.
The second piece to this museum is that it also has toys on display.
From paper dolls to vintage dollhouses and thousands of other items, the collection will take you back to the good old days. You'll love nothing more than to inspect every inch of this museum.
Plus, who could pass up on a good pinball or arcade game?
Spend an afternoon indoors checking out West Virginia's own little indoor train park at the Kruger Street Toy & Train Museum, which is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
