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.

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

This place may be nice , but we will never know , because first they do not advertise accept in the Atlanta map . Then when you go looking for it you can't find it as there are no directions to it. So you call then only to find out they are closed which would have nice to know before... 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

If you like historic transportation, this is the place. There are trucks and busses, cars and taxis, and lots of locomotives and rolling stock, passenger and freight, many open for you to explore. There are also displays of railroad china and a nice model train exhibit. Well worth the trip just a little out of Atlanta.

About a month ago I was in the area and saw a sign for this museum on the road. For some reason I remembered it the other day and we were pleased to learn our visit would be timed with the museum's second Thursday preschool program. Basically, once a month the museum has an educational program for kids age 2-4.... More

We went to the Southeastern Railway Museum with our son and our grandson (3 years old). It is a nice little museum with some interesting rolling stock to see. We had a ride on their train which my grandson enjoyed. Actually, the train only goes a few hundred yards since it is confined to the property. Having been to some... More
