I have had good experiences there as well in the past few years. The person manning the gift shop was very helpful and I ended up buy a few books and a map over the summer. I thought the layout of the museum was good as well. I have not been for a ride in over 10 years. I had once read that the original plan of the MNG, when it was created, was to connect to the Union Branch so people could be moved from the ports to Hadlock Field. (I think the article was linked on here in a previous thread.) That never happened but I think the riders might have a better experience or more positive reviews if the ride was longer. There is nothing wrong with the current ride though. How long is the current ride one way?
