Even if you aren't a die-hard train fan this museum is worth a visit. Inside and outside displays offer a lot of variety. You can climb into many cars and explore. Sometimes train rides are also offered. A lovely way to spend an afternoon.

We visited the new location as well as the old location. The new location is a static display museum. The old location was a more of a hands on where you actually rode a train with old cabooses behind it around the property. At the old location there was a scale railroad that kids could relate to. It was a... More

Very nice to walk through old restored cars of all styles and eras. A history of old buses and cable cars from the Atlanta area as well. Cute little gift shop offers authentic railroad patches for sale.

We must have lucked out because it was light rain and low 70's, which is very unusual for July, but perfect for climbing in and out of the trains. My daughter is 9 and we had our 6 month old son with us. We did use a stroller through most of it and would just carry the baby through the... More

This is a lovely little museum that takes you into the past. There are numerous coaches, trains, engines, caboose and buses that you can step into. It's a real nice to step into these train cars of yesteryear. My 3 year old son was super excited - he spent a good 2 hours climbing up and down the various train... More

you should probably check this place out. They offer a wide variety of trains that you can climb up into and explore. The museum portion is well done. (I'd skip the train ride unless you have small children.) The staff onsight are nice but don't expect to ever get a response if you attempt to email them. It's super hot... More

It was alot of fun from the train ride to the tour of all eras of trains. Favorite thing was being able to climb up into the top of the... More

You get to actually walk through the trains, sit in the seats, look at some of the old utensils, etc...along with history to read about each one. I suggest going on a cooler day because the inside of the trains get pretty hot. Each one has it's own story and then you get to ride inside a train on the... More
