Stumbled on this gem when looking for an outing while visiting the area. Friendly staff and very interesting. Not for little children but a great adult afternoon activity.

The museum covered all the transportation history of the area from the native American's in dugouts to trains, horse and buggy, and the motor car. It also tells of the involvement of Fayetteville and it's people during the Revolutionary War, War of 1812 and the Civil War. Wonderful displays. It's free too.

Fayetteville has so much history and the transportation museum does a Fabiola's job of pulling much if it together. Plan a day to see all the sights in Downtown Fsyetteville.
