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.

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.
Compact, yet informative! The staff was very helpful and pleasant. A good place for kids over 5 years old.

One end has a small pavilion and park where... More
This park is a nice place to take small kids and a good book. The kids play on the trains, look at the toy train displays inside the depot, while Dad reads a good book and lazes in the sun.
