We took our 4 kids here on a Saturday and they enjoyed the outside trains. The train viewing station is right next door and we were able to watch a train go by. The museum is very small but we spent most of our time outside.

This is a low-key train museum housed in the old Plant City train station. It's filled with all things train and represents train travel from the very early days of Plant City when the only major method of travel was by train. It was a fascinating visit and the viewing platform across the tracks in a great place to see the rail traffic. Definitely a good time.

My son loves this museum and it certainly is worth checking out. It provides some history of the area and if someone is a train enthusiast, it is a must-see!

Heading back to the Orlando area from cities on the Gulf Coast, I intended to have a coffee stop at the Krazy Kup in the downtown area of Plant City. It was on a Sunday. Everything was closed, including the building at the Robert W. Willaford Railroad Museum, but the grounds were open. Out in front of the museum, I met a local woman who was out for a walk with her toddler in a stroller and her dog. She was originally from a town in Maine less than away from where I live. She walked through the museum grounds with me, pointing out and talking to me about the various things there. I especially liked the Seaboard caboose #5735. That was in very good condition. I also liked Atlantic Coast Line engine #508 on display. The Atlantic Coast Line covered Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and Alabama. Just from touring the grounds and outdoor displays, I rate the Robert W. Willaford Railroad Museum at 5.0. I’m into railroad museums, so I may be a bit biased. I look forward to a return visit on a day when the museum is open so I can see everything inside the building. If you found this review helpful, please click THANK below.
