Located across from Zoo Miami, the Gold Coast Railroad Museum is another good one for the kids, with its collection of old trains and carriages. The highlight is the Ferdinand Magellan, a railroad coach used by presidents Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower and, for one day during the 1984 election campaign, Ronald Reagan. Kids will enjoy rides on the Edwin Link Children’s Railroad (1pm and 3pm on weekends, $3), and for adults it’s a pleasant way to wind down for an hour after the zoo.
