Facility:Gold Coast Railroad Museum
Description:Choo-choo fanatics will adore this authentic train museum. In addition to watching elaborate model railroads zoom around their tracks, kids get to climb into the Ferdinand Magellan, the armor-plated railcar used by several U.S. presidents when trains were the standard mode of travel, plus explore the 40 other historic trains in the museum's collection. Younger kids will spend most of their time pushing Thomas trains on wooden tracks. It's best to go on weekends, when the museum offers two riding attractions (for an extra fee): a 20-minute loop on a children's railroad, and a stint in the operating cab of a real diesel-electric locomotive.

Fun place for train lovers. Check to see if Thomas the Train is visiting. There is an extensive gift shop with snacks. This is the only air conditioning. There are quite a few train cars to board and investigate. There is also a small train ride for an additional cost. This is a fun and quick destination without being too pricey.

Been here quite a few times due to birthday parties..obviously you can rent the facilities to celebrate..
You can enjoy going in and out of the these historic trains and checking them out as much as you like, take pictures, they have a separate building, which is where the kids go and play with the Thomas trains and you get to see displays of model trains in glass boxes.
They have a gift shop and some small train rides.
You can also go the The Miami Metro Zoo, they are literally right next door to them. :)

The museum have a few railroad cabins that keep the history...Two of these The US One (that was use for the presidents in the past) US army medical cabin. The most interest is representation of mini towns and replicas
