Travel Town Museum, Los Angeles Reviews - Write a Review
Took my 2.5 year olds here. First part was great where you could see inside the train. Disappointing to see majority of trains were closed or private party only. My kids enjoyed the play area inside the museum and the train ride which was 2.50 each.
Cool little park/musuem. Great for kids birthdays/get togethers. The cars can be rented and are affordable ( 150 after getting your deposit back). They have a fridge and has air conditioning inside. Lots of trains to look at with a cute train ride that goes around the park. Only down side is there isn't any trains you can really climb which is all the kids want to do.
My family and I had a wonderful time at Travel Town Museum. It was clean, plenty of green space to relax, walkways flat enough to push a stroller, and the trains were impressive, so huge close up. I am writing this review because of a experience I had at the gift shop. I collect snow globes and thought this would be a good reminder of our wonderful visit. I purchased a snow globe and was showing it to my grand daughter. She dropped it on the cement and it chipped and cracked. I took it into the gift shop and they allowed me to exchange it for a new snow globe. I was so impressed. I would recommend this destination for a wonderful experience!
I like looking at the trains and I went with my staff person it was a really great museum. I also bought a shot glass as a souvenir at the Museum store. I would recommend anyone who likes trains to come and see for yourself.
My nephew and I love to hang out here for a few hours, it's a free attraction that has trains, he loves trains.
