This is a real museum, with real artifacts and stories. Not an amusement park or anything exaggerated to make entertainment. If you're really interested in the railroads and the people who ran them, this is the place for you.

Events of historical significance are documented by photographs taken by locals. Although our host was very good, we did miss...More

If you're in the area downtown Hinton is worth the trip. The Railroad Museum is a must stop for those with an interest in old time railroading. It's free but do leave a donation.

The railroad museum opened our eyes to what life was like when the town was a hub and hopping. Really brought home what happens in an area with one big employer when that employer leaves.

We were so surprised by all of the info on the railroad in this little museum. The lady who founded it was very knowledgeable and was eager to share. It was free with donations accepted.

The Railroad Museum is one of few places in town to visit or spend time, other than the local state parks and rivers. It is very large and completely full of railroad history of southern West Virginia. The older lady who runs the museum was...More
