Foley Railroad Museum reviews
Very nice Museum! Can’t beat the price, it’s free!! Definitely try to come when the model train exhibit and train ride is open.

Awesome for little kids. Our group had kids between 2-6 and they all loved it. The train ride (12 minutes) was fabulous. There's a little kid train you can climb on that was a hit as well. We walked in/around the big train cars too. We spent about 20 minutes admiring the model trains, which were even interesting for adults. They've got a scavenger hunt (kid and adult versions) for you to find things in the model train set up. We had a picnic in the park and looked at the little Christmas village that's set up near the big Christmas tree in the park. There's a museum space also that features the history of the Foley train station and history of the town. We spent about 1.5-2 hours there and it was perfect.
Just riding through and decided to stop. It was an amazing little adventure. You can enter the trains and there is a building set up with train tracks. The history is captivating and the workers or volunteers love to tell you anything that you would want to know. Highly recommend!
This is an excellent excursion for train-lovers of all ages. We parked for free on Chicago St. Upon entering the museum, we were greeted by a historian who gave us a thorough background and significance of the historic building. Next, we walked through a small exhibit. The star of the show; however, was the model train exhibit. The level of detail was unbelievable! Furthermore, the exhibit was attended by several individuals who had extensive knowledge of the train exhibit. Outside, there are a few train cars to climb on. Entry was free; donations were accepted. The gift shop is cash/check only.
The cutest museum!! My little boys LOVED it and we can’t wait to visit again! The model train part was so impressive! The staff were so sweet and it was really clean.
Great family experience, especially if you're on a tight budget because its FREE to go to. The model exhibit is awsome and is ran by friendly staff who have just about an answer to every question you have. (Cool tip: ask them to turn off the lights and you can see the whole model exhibit from a night experience). They also give kids(or adults who are kids at heart) a "hobo hunt" checklist to find all sorts of cool stuff. Definitely going back!!!
