This area was orginally developed because of transportation needs. WE are at the mouth of the Cape Fear River. This museum tells that key to our history plus lots of interesting tidbits, like a 1950's gas station, info on hotels - steam boat travel, etc.

This museum is small but it has a lot of information and displays. It is free which is a big bonus. I have paid to get into smaller and less well done museums. My boys (11, 9, 9) enjoyed the museum and a bonus was when a train went past carrying military equipment. We made a special trip to the... More

This place is ok if you don't have anything better to do, there is much there, it will take you about 15 minutes to go thru it, fortunately they don't charge anything.

This museum was really cool to see the different modes of transportation and how they work. There is a horse drawn carriage there and a very old canoe from wood that is very old. walk upstairs and see the history of the town. Really cool.

How fortunate for Fayetteville that it's 1890 train depot has been so well cared for and now offers a great little museum, filled with exhibits of interest to all ages. The small gift shop is also one of Fayetteville's visitor info centers; you'll learn a lot here about all the area offers for visitors. Just outside the depot is a... More

Small, but take it in during your downtown tour. Well done with educated staff - you even might find the city historian there!

This museum is located in a historic train depot. It gives you a concise, brief overview of transportation in Fayetteville. My kids enjoyed it and we will be back. It was nice to see the photos of old downtown Fayetteville and the banking history.

It wasn't very big, but it had lots of local artifacts and history. Two floors, free admission and very friendly staff. We also went on a Saturday and the farmers market was outside as well.

Took the kids by here after visiting the Airborne Special Operations Museum in Fayetteville. This is a nice small museum with a lot of local history. The Lafayette room and the Civil War room are very nice. Highly recommend dropping by this local attraction if you have a couple hours to kill. No fees to visit! Staff was helpful and... More
