Aruba Model Train Museum

One man's love for trains led to a small personal collection that grew into an entire exhibit at the Aruba Model Train Museum. Ever since he was a small boy, Director J. de Vries has collected toy and model trains. He now displays his collection for the enjoyment of anyone who is interested in seeing it.


When visiting this small museum, guests will can look at the collection of toy trains, as well as replicas of small towns that accompany them.
