This museum isn't very big but it was well done and interesting. It is free to the public. Can't beat that. There is a little model train inside with different artifacts. All of the employees/volunteers were super friendly and intelligent about what was in the museum. Outside rests the historic steam loco #1673. The engine was of great interest to everyone. A guide was there to answer questions and explain the related history to you. There was also a life size sculpting of Wyatt Earp and one of Frank Stilwell outside. There is a tiny gift shop. It was worth the stop.

It was nice and glad to see a good turn out of people visiting this downtown location. The train museum volunteers were very knowledgable of train history. The public was able to view and climb on a locomotive engine.

Today was the 2and time we have visited and my 12 yr old continues to love it. The employees are always helpful and are impressed with my son's knowledge. One of them made sure he saw the video of the Big Boy 4014 coming to town. It was awesome! Thanks for always making my train kid feel special!

Amazing to go the Amtrak station in Tucson and see a real steam engine. Museum is separate. Go when hours are listed. Volunteers let you aboard. Great for kids of all ages. Then walk somewhere for lunch. Our 4 yr old grandson, still talking about the place.

The locomotive from the movie Oklahoma is outside the museum and great fun to check out. The museum is donation based with a suggested $5 donation per person. The museum is small , but extremely well done and informative.
