“staff very very friendly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

It wasn't a whole lot to see but my toddler really enjoyed seeing the trains go around the train table and going into the trains that they had available on display. When we went they were not all on display because they had a special event they were preparing for. The staff were very nice but they do have women from the local prison who come to volunteer and they were there when we arrived.

“Low Key”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

This is a self guided tour with knowledgeable volunteers available to answer questions. The trains on display appeal to all ages. Keep in mind the area has a roof, but minimal heating and cooling.

“This place, You must need to visit with your children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Engine 819, Pine Bluff’s legendary queen of steam, weights 368 tons, measures 100 feet from front to back, takes 150 gallons of water and 15 gallons of oil just to run one mile of track. Railroad buffs should not miss it! Volunteer craftsmen, lovingly rebuilt Engine 819, the last 4-8-4 Northern type steam locomotive built in Pine Bluff. Tours are available year-round. The museum also houses passenger cars, cabooses and baggage cars – all restored to their original splendor as well as many artifacts used back in the days of steam engines.
Like I say, you must visit this place while you are in Pine Bluff with your children.
