Small nice for 1 hr

If you got a small kid, that is great to pass 1-2 hr's in this small museum is they like trains. Also include the short train ride, was the best part of the visit.

We attended a birthday party for a young family member and didn't really know what to expect. The young girls and boys had a great time with the party taking place in a rail car. There was a museum that had all types of toy trains being run by the volunteers who work at the attraction. The day ended with... More

Fun and different activity for children and train enthusiasts of all ages. We take our grandchildren every year for the Polar Express event and they (we) love it. It's great to walk through the old trains and imagine travel in years gone by. The train ride outdoors is something that the kids really enjoy! Great value for the money.

When I first arrived to this Train Museum I had no idea what a great treat and pleasure and learning experience this Museum would offer. I have never in all of my life been able to be so up front and personal with getting on and off of real Nostalgic Trains that were left as they were from the last... More

Much better than anticipated. Lots of train cars to enter, plus a full size and small one to ride as well. Excellent ( well air-conditioned!!) museum within larger building. We would go back - especially for one of many special events.

Nice place to stop if you happen to be passing by. Not worth a trip. Very small, bare-bones building with a little of the past attached.

We enjoyed the SRM and admire the members of this railroad club for making it available to the lay people as well as the aficionados. Three & five year old grandsons joined us. We all agreed that the best part was the train rides. The old coaches and engines brought back memories. so many in one place was surprising. They... More

First of all this preface: I love railroads and am a model railroader. That said, the Southeastern Railway Museum is fun not only for train buffs, but for folks interested in history and what kid doesn't love trains. There are two actual trains running, a small one that loops around for kids. The other is powered by a real diesel... More
