The Train Museum at Port Adelaide is such a great day out for the family with lots of interactive experiences for the kids.
There's train rides, lots of full size trains to climb into, cafe and model trains. There's different types of trains to view and climb into and experience. The kids can pretend to be the driver and play with the train controls.
My son loved riding the steam train that was running that day. He even got to pull the cord and get to release the steam. The experience was so much fun with tickets being issued and a hole punched to validate the ticket.
The model trains were fun to watch the little trains go round on their tracks.
The signals were great to play with, the lights flashing and making noises. The old school scales to jump on was great to play on, even though it wasn't working. Most of the museum is undercover making it great for a rainy day.
