Very nice presentation of transportation and history for the local area. Their hard work is evident and we learned a lot.

Free, one of the Fayetteville Passport Book stops. A few things on the first floor and some nice history lessons and displays on the second floor. A must see for history buffs as it outlines the history of the area pretty well. At times, they have car shows, and other events outside, which are always a welcome site. If you... More

This is a very small museum that is mostly dedicated to one of their contributors. It contains much Jewish memorabilia but not too much transportation. The second building contains car parts, one jeep and a wagon. It doesn't take very long to tour.

Went for the farmer market and stopped by. I learned so much about the trains and Fayetteville. The kids love the model train and the ladies were so nice and caring.

The museum had interesting exhibits and placards to read with a focus on riverboats and railroad transportation. It is housed in the old train depot. Well worth a stop.

My wife and I have visited the Transportation Museum on several occasions to tour the various exhibits. We regularly visit the farmers market there on Saturday mornings as well. The museum has several permanent exhibits about Fayetteville transportation history that are very informative and well put together. The museum is split between the main building which is an old train... More

Great depiction of how it was back in the day. Nice diarama's of the area. Not enough parking. Beautiful station/building.
