We were here late after a visit to Cream City Ice Cream, but the train park is great, clean and family friendly. I can't wait to go back to see the museum.

This is so beautiful. They have brought this historic depot back to life it is now a museum. It houses a replica of the west end of town during the 1900's. Be sure to stop by it's well worth it.

The Depot has so many activities! Follow them on Facebook to stay informed! Train Stories on Friday mornings with Beth are great!

The Cookeville Depot Museum is the keystone of all historical sites in Cookeville A beautifully maintained, former operable train depot, that has been converted to a museum. Full size locomotive, train cars and caboose. Also, walk down historic W. Broad to the Cookeville History Museum. A lot of interesting displays that you will enjoy.

Those of you with roots here know that this was one of the most important depots in WW II history. The neighborhood nearby is nicely revitalized and you can make an afternoon of it with the Depot as a highlight. Climb train cars, look at original station furnishings and supplies.

We have some extra time and decided to visit. There were quite a few young kids enjoying the place with their parents. We enjoyed it too. You can climb in the cars plus the small museum has some interesting stuff. Plus it's free! We enjoyed the ice cream parlor nearby too.

We had a great visit, it was a rainy day and although the museum is small it is packed full of great history and information. We were the only people there at the time and we were given a personal tour of the trains and she gave us a great history lesson too. Thanks for the great tour.

Not a whole lot to it but simple and historical. Worth the half hour drive we took. The guy behind the counter was very nice. I believe it's closed Mondays. Inside only open til 4pm also.
