While returning from Oshkosh some years ago we started to assemble a list of places a model engineer might like to see. The above link should take you there.

If you have any suggestions to add please send them along.

Quite a collection. Now that we have a trailer-camper we will take advantage of the list.

If you ever get to Southern California, this museum is definitely worthy of a visit.

Gary: Thanks for the tip about the Joe Martin museum. I have added it to the list so maybe someone else will get to enjoy it!

That's a sure stop off point. Joe Martin was a great guy.
