The Georgia State Railroad Museum is a great place for train enthusiasts. They have an original turntable on site and many of the original buildings on the site. There are many different engines at the site as well and there are a couple of train cars that you can go aboard. Very interesting place.

A small, but interesting piece of history. It could have been better. All the rail cars were locked so you could only go in as part of the docent led tours. The exhibits were all outdoors, so it's an early morning or Spring/Fall activity. Finally, except for a few planned presentations throughout the day, there are no docents on hand to explain things.

I think once the construction is done it will be more fun. We also thought we got to do an actual train ride. That was not the case. We moved only a little bit. We bought the museum 3 pass, so no big deal. But I wouldn't pay just to go to this. We have kids ranging from 15-9 and everyone was bored.

Visited with our 4 yo son who’s a train nut. Able to tour the executive cars and then ride the train/turn table. Our tour guide was informative and tried to make it entertaining as well. Received a discount on our tickets due to the production company/construction happening on the grounds. We visited on a Wednesday am and it was fairly quiet. Did have a kids and adults map of the grounds which was nice because my son wanted his own map and pointed out things. Takes approx 1.5-2 hours to tour if you do the tours etc. Only negative is I wish they’d post more info about tour/train ride times etc on their website vs call for more info etc

Enjoyed our visit here - not too much to see but learned loads and found the history interesting. Went on the train ride and experienced the train turning on the turntable. Walked round the cars and even climbed in one but didn’t make it on the tour of the cars just due to the timing . Staff were knowledgeable and seemed to be genuinely happy to be there.
