Where You "Ride the Exhibits!"
The Ticket Office and Gift Shop is open Thursday – Sunday from 10 AM to 4 PM. The museum’s exhibits and train rides operate on weekends only. Our operating train equipment is not available for viewing during the week.
Due to the historic nature of our equipment, our cars are not wheelchair accessible. However, there is a wheelchair-friendly loading ramp to board the train. We ask that if you may need assistance boarding to please contact the ticket office ((941)776-0906) prior to arriving to make arrangements.
From June 4 through August 28, children 3-11 can enjoy a trip on our 11 AM and 2 PM weekend excursions completely FREE! Free admission and NO BOOKING FEES! Just select the Free Children ticket option when making your booking with us.
There is a limit of two free tickets per paid adult, per booking. Have a bigger family? No problem! Just make a second booking, ensuring each booking has at least one paid adult.
