Spending time at the Willaford Train Museum in Plant City is one of my kids all time favorite short trips. I mean like I hear "Can we go to the train museum?" about 10 times a week. Seriously! It's a short trip and the kids always love it. Watching the model train is number one on the list, always, but there are lots of other fun stuff to explore as well. 

There are lots of educational things to look at, maps of old train track routes, heavy nails to pick up. Plus stuff to climb on, levers to move and sounds to make. The train comes through town (both going north/south and east/west) multiple times a day. You can feel the Amtrak whizz by on its way to Tampa or watch it fly by from up on the viewing platform. The platform is open 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. 

The museum is perfect for a 30 minute jaunt or part of a longer visit around Plant City. We often hit up The Corner Store for lunch before going to see the trains and then head over to Neumeister's Candy Shoppe for a sweet treat. There is also an awesome ice cream shop just around the corner. 

The grounds and park around the train museum are high on the list of searched places for those of you hitting the painted rock craze hard! We often find cute rocks there and almost always see people hiding and searching! 

Out in front of the museum is also a fabulous little lending library, so bring a few books to leave or pick up a new one!
