Have volunteered here for the past four years. Great volunteer experience with individuals that are dedicated to preserving four 16” gauge outdoor railroad and putting smiles on the faces of children of all ages. The best kept secret in Kansas City and the best 75 cent attraction in the area. Great place for giving back to the community.
