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

We were traveling from Tulsa back home to NC, and, being aspiring railroad enthusiasts, we saw the sign on I-40 and stopped in. The museum, which looked fairly new, was quite informative regarding the life and death of "Casey" Jones, who died in 1900 attempting unsuccessfully to avert a collision between his train and a passenger train which was on...

It was a stop we wanted to check out on our way home. We were not over thrilled with what they had and after seeing other museums, it was a little let down, but if you are a Casey Jones fan, it is a must stop. His home is there for the tour and some little shops to spend money... More

It was very neat to see all the train memorabilia. I had never heard of Casey Jones before. But it was cool.

Very disturbed at seeing the black-face "mammy" figurines, evoking, celebrating images of slavery. Lost my appetite.

This is a nice stop for travelers. The train museum is interesting and had a very good video about Casey Jones. Enjoyed touring the house. The food was over priced.

This is a MUST if you want a true experience of Tennessee! Enjoy the "pickin'" of acoustical string instruments every Thursday evening at The Casey Jones Village! Totally Free! (How rare is this?!) You may experience this music both indoors and outdoors! Several small clusters of The Jackson Plectral Society play every Thursday evening. I personally enjoy having some ice... More

Very good, if you get there at lunch the price is even better. Real southern cooking, they make something like a bread pancake on the grill in front of you. the salad is very good, they have fresh fruit, so were the ribs and the chicken. Go hungry !
