7379 Squire Ct, West Chester Township
EnterTrainment is simply mind blowing. When you walk inside you know that it was created by someone who had a passion and love of trains. The displays and intricacy of detail are overwhelming. Every time we visit the world’s largest train display, we see something new.
It is a great way to spend an entire day. In addition to the train display, they have an indoor play area called Imagination Junction, a giant play area (don’t forget socks) and several museum sections. Those are all included in the basic ticket. There are a lot of add-ons including the A-MAZE-N FUNHOUSE and an audio tour of the display, that can get overwhelming if you a]are at the ticket window. My advice is to look at the options and buy your tickets online in advance. They also have Groupons sometimes to help with the cost of the visit.
The National Voice of America Museum of Broadcasting
8070 Tylersville Rd, West Chester Township, OH 45069
The Voice of America Museum is only open the third Saturday of the month from 1 -4pm, but it is worth making the time to go through. It was interesting to see the kids, who have had a phone in their hands since they were little understand how long it took to get the technology in their pocket. They learned about the history of broadcasting, how lucky they are in terms of technology and how important this area was to WWII.
