Taking a Trip Back in Time...

Visiting Memphis Central Station you almost feel like you have taking a trip back in time to the 1960's. Very nostalgic!

The station itself is basic but the building slightly grand, on my late night visit our train was delayed, the station area was safe and a full time police station... More

Checking in was easy but on the return trip coming off a full train the baggage claim was a bit crazy - surely there is a... More

not a lot at the station but it does get you down to go look at the water, free bus turns there so you won't get lost! Very clean and up todate.. not really an attraction though

A wonderfully informative Train &Trolly museum is housed in the same building. Great exhibits, working switchboards, even Thomas the Train area for kids. Phase One completed and donations for admissions go to Phase Two.
