Interesting museum
Mar 2020
The wife and I visited this museum and thoroughly enjoyed it. Work was being done upstairs so we didn't see all the displays - the model train especially but there was enough other displays on the first floor to enjoy and learn from.

Some Great History!

I was surprised to learn some of the history of Dickson! And above all you have to check out the electric train set upstairs, these two veterans have done a great job!

Another great hidden history museum!
Sep 2019
On a side street off the old downtown Main Street in Dickson, you can discover its history in an old railroad hotel. Well led tours and a small book/gift shop with a working model railroad display on the second floor!

Excellent Small Museum
Aug 2019
The Clement Railroad Hotel Museum was quite a surprise. The model railroad display was top notch. The docent, Lowell, was the nicest fellow and was very knowledgeable about the model train (which he operated for us) and about railroad history in Dickson. There were several other really professional displays of artifacts and information about Franklin County history and the history of the hotel. We even learned that the first female US Senator was Hattie Wyatt Caraway from Dickson. But I think the most impressive part of the museum were the displays focused on Dickson native and former Tennessee governor Frank Clement. They even have a recreation of his office with desk and chair and such. It was very well done. This is a small museum but well worth the time.

Very interesting

Worth the time. Nice displays on railroad history, history of the hotel, and history of Dickson. Wonderful moving, detailed model train display! Kids and adults will love seeing the intricate detail of the scenery as the trains move around. The only negative was our tour guide, who we hooked up with after we had gone through half of the museum independently. He spent forever in one room, then moved us across the hall to another room where he started into a conversation with another Dickson resident, going down memory lane from high school. After we realized they were not going to stop, we left. So he basically abandoned us after one room.

TN and railroad history here
Feb 2019 • Couples
This railroad hotel has been around for over a hundred years. The three time governor of TN was born here. Dickson was major railroad switching hub until the interstate road system put them out to pasture. Interesting to see how people lived at the beginning of the 20th century.
