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

Whether you love trains or have just a passing interest, the Southeastern Railway Museum will provide you with plenty to look at, touch, climb on, and admire, everything from big steam engines, to handcars, to lanterns, to fire trucks, to a steam driven threshing machine. We've been in other railway museums, but this is the best. Give yourself plenty of... More

Went to the museum for a photo club outing. Found several acres of trains and displays that were very interactive. You may walk among the trains, touch things, get into the trains, and even ride in moving cars. Restored cars are beautiful. Unrestored cars are just that - looking old. It all gives you the feel of being in the... More

Literally loads of trains and buses to clamber aboard and explore. Bells to ring and photos to be taken. There is a miniature railway for rides which is also good. The souvenir shop is aimed at enthusiasts although the obligatory Thomas produce are available. We visit two or three times a year from the UK and apart from Christmas this... More

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.
