“Very informative and growing”

Hub City Railroad Museum
Ranked #11 of 44 things to do in Spartanburg
Attraction details
Reviewed September 1, 2013

This museum is in the Spartanburg train station, near downtown and just a few miles off I-85. It has a few rooms of very informative memorabilia, mostly from the Southern Railway but also from the other railroads that served Spartanburg. There are also a few model train displays and a gift shop. The staff is very, very friendly and will gladly walk you around the museum and tell you about the area's railroad history. It should be expanding soon.

Tiny museum but only open 3 yrs so will prob expand. People could not be nicer. Brilliant for young kids (approx 3-5). Model train in the restored carraige for kids to play with. Free admission to both museum and carraige. Great way to pass 45 mins or so.

One of the enjoyable things we did on our recent "road trip" when we stayed in Spartanburg; got to see the museum and do a little "railfanning" right outside!

I've been to a lot of much better railroad museums, Although these people try hard, they are way too underfunded to do it right.

We took the grandchildren, but enjoyed it as much as they did. What a little treasure and the most knowledgable people who love to talk about trains.
