Southeastern Railway Museum is a place to go to look at anything train related. They have all different types of train from sleeper cars to old mail vehicles. Definitely worth a trip especially if you have children.

We have been coming here for the last 13 years and it is a family favorite. My son loves the friendly staff and riding the train. They have cool model train shows often too!

Right in our own backyard. Duluthians, a must visit for you. Anyone else interested in railroading throughout the years will find the exhibits super interesting. From the BIG engines to the models to the 3-rail Lyonell trains. Expect to spend several hours on the grounds so that you can investigate all the nooks and crannies of the facility. In the... More

Dropped by one afternoon, and was pleasantly surprised at all the great old trains....engines, Pullman cars, and others. Interesting displays of various rail items...inside and out. 2 bulidings with assorted rolling stock outside. $10 entrance fee for adults. If you are a train enthusiast, this place is a must. If you're in the area with some free time, it's a... More

Went with my 2 year old niece and her mom & our parents. My dad really enjoyed seeing everything and both my sister & I found it educational and fun. Most of the trains could stand a good cleaning, but it was really cool seeing the history there.

Awesome Museum. Was surprised at how much fun this Museum was. Had many trains of all ages. Could walk in many of them. They did a great job of tying in taxis, wagons, buses of a similar era. Got there a bit late so couldn't explore it all but very fun. Children would love this place.

This was a lot more than we were expecting. They have exhibitions from a large cross section of railroad history and even a 20 minute train ride. The price is extremely reasonable and the enthusiasm and knowledge of the volunteers is almost contagious. I cannot wait to take my grandson there - he will love it!

We went with 2adult children and 2grand children. It was cold but everyone enjoyed the visit. The trains take you back to the past and the train ride was fun for all.

It took us 3 hours to see all the trains as well as ride one. The large train ride is $3. and takes 20 minutes. You get to see them switch the track and you go a short distance to the maintenance shed. There are 2 old tractors, lots of old Atlanta buses and a few old cars as well.... More
