Model railroad layout.

American Windmill Museum

Tons of windmills! In addition, there's a G-scale or large scale train display. Trains run all the time down the 100-ft. display, and also on an elevated track around the museum. A former mechanical engineer keeps things ticking, and was a real nice gentleman to talk to. Good place for teens.
