Before we visited Northlandz, I thought it was made just for little boys. I sure was pleasantly surprised to see that Northlandz is suitable, enjoyable and of course fascinating for both adults and children alike. Each gender and age can lap up the displays and activities on its own level.
Northlandz was the created as a result of Bruce Zaccagnino’s dream. It is the largest museum of its sort in the world. It spans 52,200 square feet with about 40,000 square foot of train tracks that run through various scenes and types of landscapes. The trains all run on timers which are set in the control room. The controls can run 90 trains at once. If any of them get stuck or malfunction, Bruce takes care of repairs after hours. Although the museum is astonishingly large, Bruce still works on adding to it on a constant basis.
Aside for the mile long tour of the mountains and model railroad. Northlandz also offers an outdoor train ride on a genuine steam engine train and a doll exhibit featuring the largest doll house with 94 rooms.
Northlandz is not something that can adequately be described in words it is something you need to see for yourself!
