I grew up hearing the story about Casey Jones. This is a very nice museum with a lot of great train memorabilia.

Love the old timey cars and trains. If you're at the store next door, do see the museum. Local history, rail history, and stuff for kiddos.

What an interesting place – a whole myth has grown around the first recorded ‘boy racer’ but this one was not in charge of a car but a train full of people! He saved a train full of people but killed himself because he was driving far too fast – the museum shattered my illusion of this train driver who... More

We always though Casey jones was a fictional character! How wrong could we be. This museum was set up brilliantly with the engine, house, museum and shop, all very interesting. Spend a couple of hours here and ate in the restaurant which was very authentic, food was great!

We had always thought that this was folklore, and were surprised to find that he John Luther Jones was a real person who had lived in Jackson at the time of his crash. There were interesting artifacts to see in the museum, and they were making progress improving the site while we were there. This might not be a major... More

The rails come alive in the history of the heroic death of a legendary folk hero. View artifacts, (one of) Casey Jones' house and a replica of the train Casey was at the helm of at the time of his death. You think you know Casey Jones? Go check it out and learn something new learn something old!

The kids like going to Casey Jones just to hang out in the gift shop (which is free). They have thomas train tables, model trains that the kids can push the button to make go, Thomas movies and a little quarter train ride.The museum part is interesting to see once. The kids like to go in the big train outside... More

Cool spot to see the engines and the music highway cross roads with the Carl Perkins sign. Not much to Jackson, but seeing Casey Jones Home and the Perkins Sign made it a little better.

Admittedly, I'm a history nut with family history in railroading. I found both the store and the personnel charming. I was on a road trip, and pulled off on a whim. Loved the dinner buffet (maybe not the BEST of everything, but there were LOTS of choices). As a Californian who had never tried many of these dishes, I loved... More

Breakfast at the restaurant was awesome, although some Buffet items had run out early on. Staff was great. Would highly recommend checking out their store too.
