Amazing train museum
Dec 2019 • Family
This is a combination of several running trains that is well designed and of displays of many old train cars. This is the real thing if you love trains. The volunteers who maintain this collection are very committed to the museum and are also quite knowledgeable. Lots of fun to visit.

The volunteers are fantastic, patiently and knowledgeable in explaining to the guests. My grandson loves to be here and always meets a friend here. Only wish they were open every weekend.

Free and an amazing train display!!! Open 2nd Saturdays! What a collection!!!! My understanding is that a local man donated this collection to the city and others added to it.

Free train display - 2nd Saturdays
Apr 2019 • Family
Only open 2nd Saturdays 10am-2pm. My 3 and 10 yr old were both entertained for over an hour. Big track set up with like 7 different trains running. They even let the kids control one of the trains, which they loved. Great for a rainy Saturday.

Trains!!!!

This is by far the neatest meet of train and rail lovers in the area. Small but lots of neat items and nice people. The display is very cool and the folks here take great pride in keeping the heritage going. i highly recommend visiting the display every second Saturday of the month. This is one of the many reasons Mebane is positively charming!!

Fun place on a rainy day!
May 2017
Stumbled on this one rainy day just driving around Mebane.
It is located off the main routes and is only open the second Saturday of eac month except in December when they have extended hours. A collection of trains was donated to the city of Mebane and this wonderful display of model railroads is the result. It is super entertaining for children and all of us who love trains and even those who don't. This is a fascinating display! A train show is held in March of each year to raise money to maintain the display.

The train layout brings back family experience before smartphones and computer games. It is worth the time to visit.
