This is a nice little museum tracing the train history of Spartanburg. Good for adults and children alike. Won't take maybe an hour at most, and make sure you talk to the volunteer on site for additional interesting information. The farm market has moved to a new location, it was really great when you could take in both at one... More

You're not going to make a day of it, but an interesting piece of local history. Especially convenient to check out during the farmer's market.

Hub City Museum is a marvelous learning experience. The young man we had as a guide was very knowledgeable and very personable. Older group of adults is what our party consisted of.

The place is filled with old train material and information. It is very interesting to stroll through the place and see the train memories.

This museum is good for adults but did not keep my children's attention very long. I enjoyed the exhibits and reading about the rails. The caboose is neat and my children enjoyed it. Most of the indoor museum was just a little too dry for my kids.

It's a cute little museum in a wonderful location. They actually have a small farmers market right outside their door and have awesome fruits and veggies to purchase while you're visiting.

This was a neat little museum to stumble upon and learn more about the history of Spartanburg. We actually heard about it from the staff at Comfort Suites when we asked about some historical things we could do in town. Enjoyed!
