The museum houses a dozen colorful galleries offering a wide variety of educational and fun hands-on activities. Junction 9161 and the Engine House galleries immerse visitors in train history with a 1910 Pullman passenger coach and a 1952 diesel locomotive. A walk through the Illusion Tunnel will test perceptions. Tot Spot caters to little ones. Other areas include Splash Lab, Pop m'Art, Story Line, Tumble Zone, Lasagna Lookout and Milk Machine.
