Review №1

The Toy Train Depot was the perfect way to spend our Saturday afternoon! The collection is honestly amazing and I was surprised at how much information there was. I loved everything about it!

Review №2

They are open! This place rocks. Its full of models, photos/pictures, and awesome train stuff. Its train watcher must see stuff.

Review №3

Really sweet people running a really cool place. If you have kids like my 4 yr old who is OBSESSED with trains, this place is a must. The train ride on a 1/5 scale Pacific is so worth it. Stop by and spend some time, your kids will have a blast. Great way to spend some quality time with your family on a budget.

Review №4

Affordable museum and fun little train ride through Alameda Park, which is at the heart of Alamogordo! And the staff at the museum are very knowledgeable about the history of Alamogordo, which makes it super interesting to visit!

Review №5

This little museum and train ride was a lot of fun. It has a lot of neat train layouts in the museum. They give guided tours to educate you about the history of trains. The train ride provided much excitement for my kids. The guy that gave us the ride was very friendly. He seemed to really enjoy his job. They also have some train memorabilia for sale. The things they had were not bad priced. See the pictures below for their hours. Google has the hours posted wrong. This is a great stop if you have a train enthusiast in your family.

My kiddo and I had a great time riding on the train. The staff here is super friendly and accommodating. If you are not interested in model trains, this is not the attraction for you.The train ride is remarkably long and worth the money, in my opinion. You can just buy tickets for the train, which can be nice for those with smaller kiddos.If you like toy trains, and are in the area, definitely consider adding this as a stop.On the train line there is a nice park, several shady places to picnic and a disk golf course

Review №7

Great place to eat picnic in this C-19

Review №8

Troy was awesome in giving us a friendly tour. Loved the history behind all the pieces. Highly recommend. It was fun.

Review №9

Must go if youre in Almogordo. The guy that took us on the tour was very knowledgeable about not just trains but also the history of the area. My 10 year old son loved it!

Review №10

Came to town for a visit and saw this cute gem. Unfortunately got in near closing so got an abridged tour but none the less it was a fun and eye opening sight to behold. Truly friendly staff and should be loads of fun for young toy engine fans and the older model rail enthusiast as well.

Review №11

Hidden gem! The people are very polite, helpful, and so nice. Im glad we went and will return as much as possible.

Review №12

Pretty cool and interesting store / museum. Awesome history of trains on display and multiple toy train models on display for all visitors to enjoy. Also dont forget to take a ride on the mini train that travels around the park and back.

Review №13

The train ride is $5 per person. We loved every minute of it. My son is 3 and sat through all of it up until the last minute. The train goes all the way down to the other end of Alameda park and loops back around. The toys inside the gift shop are a little expensive in my opinion. We didnt go to the museum. Its a nice quaint place.

Review №14

Great family friendly museum! If you like trains in the slightest this place is a treat. The staff was very knowledgeable with full size train history as well at model size. I would highly recommend if you are in the area to check out this great little train depot!

Review №15

My kids and myself with the grandkids all rode the train. The price was just right for all of us but next time well have to do the museum. The kids had fun. I would recommend this to anyone cuz for a short ride it was well worth it.

Review №16

Had an amazing time here. If You are a train enthusiasts or just Young @ heart; I highly recommend that You stop and check it out. They have a Beautiful set up of small replicas of the train towns in the surrounding area. They explain the history of how these towns came to be. And the schedules for when some really old original trains will be shown @ museums in cities throughout the U.S.A. Then we went on the train ride around the park. If You have Kids or Grandkids; their enthusiasm @ seeing the trains & getting to ride the small train around the park, is infectious. Make sure You Google the days & times that they are open. Just to be sure. Really enjoyed watching my little Granddaughter enjoy it, so much.

Review №17

Love seeing all the toy train.

Review №18

This small museum was a hidden gem on my familys road trip. The tour guide was enthusiastic and an expert on the history of railroads, model trains and model railroads. I knew next to nothing about toy trains when I came in, but my family spent over an hour there and we had a good time and learned a lot. The museum is well organized, educational, and fun! I highly recommend it.

Review №19

If you are interested in trains you should see this place. There are miles of model train tracks in multiple layouts with wonderful details.

This place was pretty cool! The guy with the beard (didnt catch his name) taught me more about trains in the 15 minutes i talked to him than ive learned in my whole life.

Review №24

Nice place and you learn alot about the trains

Review №25

Swiss Naval Museum is certainly worth a stop if you are in Alamogordo. The Museums curator hes very knowledgeable and very interested in the collection of toy and model trains

Review №26

Cool place for train collectors! Took my dad. He was in heaven. He even got to play with some of the models. The people running the museum were very nice!

Review №27

Its a cute thing. The trains they have would be amazing for children and I def would bring them if ya come through

Review №28

Fun little museum with a great staff of volunteers. I learned a lot about model trains, and had a nice time. Well worth the $5, and a fun break if your passing through town.

Review №29

Definitely a spot for people that are obsessed with trains. My kids loved it. If it was just the museum, it would have only been ok. But with the train ride, it made it much worth the stop.

Review №30

If you dont go here for fun, you have issues. Train rides, train museum, friendly staff. Fun times, great stuff. Love it.

Review №31

Huge train display. Awesome train ride. Kids loved it

Review №32

Love this place! Our kids cant get enough and beg to go everytime we head into Alamo to visit family.

Review №33

My kids had fun here. We are a big train family so this was great for us. If you arent obsessed with trains then this place is definitely not for you.

Review №34

Was in a sad state of repair , displays were not well taken care of , those that working trains were pretty awesome tho and the people were helpful and friendly

Review №35

Great place to take the kids and spend the full day at a reasonable price. The staff is amazing!!

Review №36

Very poor place to stop, hemmed in by a bunch of locals. Can not get any shade for my dog. I think that when people come here to park you shouldnt have to be hemmed in. I Will Not Reccomend this place to anybody I know for that of many reasons.

Review №37

Take your time and enjoy this wonderful nostalgic trip into a delightful collection of model railroads. A great ride on the toy trains through Alameda Park tops the visit. Its a great place for kids to bring their parents. More than a century of history to see - the kind of toys that made/make America great!

Review №49

Just went to sit and have lunch with my kids but it was nice and peaceful

Review №50

The Toy Train Depot is an Alamo Must See! I took my eight year old girl a few years ago and she was almost as entranced as I was by all the displays for trains. I cant remember all the different size designations but I believe the really tiny ones were Z scale - and they had them from Z Scale all the way up to the one that takes passengers around the beautiful park where the depot is located.My one bit of advice to the great, passionate people running the place: dont underestimate the intelligence of the youngsters who come in - they prefer it if you treat them just like the rest of us kids!

Review №51

Awesome place my kids love the trains

Review №52

Hey the train depot open later on 1 minute nighttime and daytime open one minute

Review №53

Its Glory days are behind them. Unless they spruce up the place. A little paint wouldnt hurt. As for the train ride, its great for small children. The museum is tiny but interesting. However its over priced. Maybe it both the train ride and museum were both $5 instead of $5 each

Review №54
