One of San Diego's best highlights. Even if you aren't a big railroad person it is interesting. The model trains are very interesting and the attention to detail is impressive. Worth 90 minutes of your time. Just sit and watch the models.
What an amazing place! Passionate staff and club members. They've put alot of time and skill the layouts at the museum. I have been there twice and enjoyed it both times!
