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.

My grandfather drove the engine into the Iselin shops (GM&O) for reconstruction in the 1950's. It is an accurate presentation of Casey's engine. The IC would not have anything to do with it since he had wrecked "their" engine. His was the only death in the tragic accident. You will enjoy the railroad artifacts that are on display there. The... More

The museum was interesting. The restaurant was ok. Needs a little TLC. The food was just alright for a buffet. The shopping area needs a facelift as well.

We stopped here by chance and the family had a good time. A small, yet interesting museum, informative film, some train cars, and Casey Jones' home. The shops and stores at the complex are fun.

Casey Jones Village Restaurant/buffet was a perfect midway point for lunch for our large group of 100 during our recent trip to Bowling Green, KY to celebrate in the 20th NCM anniversary celebration. A large meeting room was secured with a "no problem" attitude for our group. The food was hot, plenty and tasty. Thank you again to the staff... More

Remembered going here with my parents and again when my children were young and always had a nice time. Traveled as a couple (57 & 61) this time around and was not impressed. I don't think there is anything here that would interested anyone under 30 unless you work for the Railroad or are a history buff. The museum itself... More

You will want to come early in the day, go through the museum and Casey's house, visit some of the shops and end up at the restaurant or cafe. They even have live music sometimes. The musuem is a real treat. It is inexpensive and yet full of items for you to see. You can climb aboard the train outside... More
