A wonderful jewel for railroad buffs. I took my grandson for a visit and we were treated like first class passengers. Make sure you take the opportunity to visit this awesome museum.

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.

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.

This is a very small museum featuring the history of the many railroads that served and still serve Spartanburg. It is located at an Amtrak station. The staff is very helpful and you can tell that they love railroads. If you stay long enough you will be able to see some trains as they pass by the station and the... More
