The museum, at 12450 SW 152nd St. (next to Zoo Miami) houses historic trains as well as a number of interactive displays. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays.
Admission typically is $10 for adults, $8 for children age 3-12, free for children younger than 2 and military. Seniors get free entry on Wednesdays.
However, there are other discounts available, so see if you’re eligible: The museum offers a buy-one-get-one deal if you’re a Miami-Dade County employee, a teacher, a WLRN/WPBT member, or a Zoo Miami member. You’ll need to show some form of identification. You can also enjoy a BOGO if you bring your zoo tickets or have AAA.
The cost to ride a train ranges from $3 to $15 per ticket. It’s great for any train enthusiast, Thomas the Train lover or young kids. The food is reasonably priced (Frankie’s pizza food truck!) and there are plenty of trains to explore.
For more information, call 305-253-0063 or visit gcrm.org.
