What a wonderful time we had! The Museum is so much fun and there is plenty to see! The rides are reasonable and my husband and I had a great time talking with the terrific volunteers, enjoying the various demonstrations, having lunch in the soda shop and walking the grounds. We were both impressed with the volunteers and their expertise at what they do. We plan on going back. It was a breath of fresh air going back in time at the Heston Steam Museum.

What people are saying

Family fun for everyone!Must do if you are in Northern Indiana/Southwest Michigan. It's perfect for a family day or even if you are looking for something to do that's different and you don't have kids. The staff is pretty much all volunteers and they take so much pride in the trains and making sure everyone has a great experience. They even have a soda shop and restaurant there now too! I highly recommend the breakfast! This is a seasonal attraction so make sure you plan ahead, however, they do open for Halloween with a Haunted Ghost Train (appropriate for all ages) and a Christmas Train with a Santa there too!
