We were gifted with some money intended for a fun family outing and we managed to squeeze it in before school started. We picked the Transportation Museum. The museum has cars inside and lots of trains and trolleys outside. It was a little sunny outside but that didn't stop us from exploring and riding on a little train through the property.
You can walk through a variety of train cars and our little family even got a private tour of a 1940's train from a sweet old guy named Bill who fought in the Battle of the Bulge.
This place was a hit with our family. We ran out of time and didn't get to see the trolleys and hope to go back soon so we can see them up close too. After admission, train rides and snacks we managed to have some of the gifted money leftover for a date night-sweet!
Go right ahead and add this to your list of reasons to come visit our family in St. Louis! ;)
