McComb Railroad Museum
Ranked #1 of 5 things to do in McComb
Attraction details
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Take a free visit Monday through Friday from Noon till 4 PM CST. Were you will find a Railroad Museum located in a Very Quaint Old Downtown McComb Mississippi that was built by Railroad Retiree’s.
When you visit the museum, you will enter through the original Illinois Central passenger terminal now leased to Amtrak. There are lots of railroad history of “what it once was” when trains were one of the best ways of traveling!
The train station is actually used today to take or return from a trip on an Amtrak Train. You not only can see and read about how the railway system affected the area; you can experience trains coming through and stopping in McComb on a daily basis. After you experience the Museum go outside and touch or even climb on a real steam locomotive and railcars.
If you can’t get by during open hours take a tour on their website http://www.mcrrmuseum.com/History.php

Cons- some display items are broken and in need of repair

If you find yourself driving on I-55 on a pretty day and want to make a quick, fun stop, drop by the McComb Railroad Museum! Just adjacent to the McComb train depot is a delightful one-room railroad museum. You can operate a train whistle, fold down a sleeper car sink from the wall, and snoop through old railroad china and other artifacts. They have lots of photos, a model train, and even uniforms on display. This is an adorable exhibit and a quick stop. Outside, they have an old train engine and some cars on display, as well as a small train-themed playground for little ones.
