Housed in a restored Victorian school, The Kruger Street Toy & Train Museum boasts an impressive collection of tens of thousands toys and trains! An operating train layout, frequently changing exhibits, unique gift shop, coffee house and ample parking ensure your enjoyment.
we saw it in the visitor guide, looked nice, we enjoyed our visit however, for the price that we paid, we left there wondering....where was the rest. it was nice to see toys from our childhoods.
but as a tourist, they saw us coming...
This place is so cool! We could not believe all the old toys the owners have in their personal collection. Every room had something that just made you go back to your childhood and remember playing with all these wonderful toys. Our tour guide was great, very knowledgable and friendly we never thought it would be that much fun. My husband loved the train rooms the most. All of the really old trains on diplay made him kick himself for not keeping his boyhood collection. We would recomend it to all
I must agree that the Kruger Street Toy and Train Museum in Wheeling WV is a MUST SEE! I normally don't like museums but the colorful and unique billboards along the interstate sparked an interest, so I stopped in to check it out. They had more toys than I have ever seen in one place! The layout was original and very professionally done. I would have to say it is a place that contains a little bit of something for everyone. I would rate this museum an A+ for their friendly service and unique blend of history that comes with every toy. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour they provided and found it well worth the money. It is a great place to take your family.
ON a recent trip through Wheeling, West Virginia, we spotted several billboards for a place called the Kruger Street Toy & Train Museum. Decided to exit and give it a look-see. Boy, are we glad that we did! NOt only were there TONS of toys of many different types for an aging baby boomer like myself, but there were some hands-on things for our kids, a couple of neat operating train layouts, a really cool and very reasonably priced gift shop, and more! The museum was in an old schoolhouse which has been restored to what probably is better than new condition. The building ALONE would have been worth the stop. The whole family loved the visit, and we'll most definitely be going back the next time we pass through Wheeling!
