I stopped in here when I had a couple of hours free and, boy, am I glad! This museum has been decorated and furnished in much the same way as it was in the railroad's heyday.

Lived in and around dickson for years, but I never visited here until recently when I had to take my daughter to her music class held inside. While waiting we walked around and looked at the displays, and I was honestly surprised how interesting it was. There are a lot of things from the old days of travel such as... More

I really enjoyed our guide he seemed to know what he was talking about not just stating memorized facts. I wish that the tour had been longer.

Glad we went! Learned a lot about the Clements and about railroading. Very worthwhile. Highly recommend, especially for school-age kids.

This place is wonderful - the people are so welcoming and there's actually a lot of great information and displays here. We've been coming here regularly for about 15 months. The building hosts many workshops, such as music classes for young children, family yoga, and even family art classes. We are super excited about many of the events offered here.... More

Very knowledgeable stafff. Kids can have lots of hands on opportunities with train whistles, bells, etc. extensive train village set up to resemble the town in the early years. Small gift shop but prices are not out of this world.
