Original Train Depot
Feb 2020 • Couples
This place is quite small, but worth checking out as it shows what a train depot from the early 1900's was like. There are plenty of interesting details to look at.

1904 Restored Train Depot
Jan 2020
Anyone in railroading needs to stop at any historical train depot. These were the center of transportation for years and each has its own unique history. Such is the train depot in Kingsville. It was the railroad that made Kingsville "the vital that it's become today." The railroad was used to help ranchers ship their cattle north and avoid the long trail drives. Furthermore, when the railroad was built, passengers could easily travel south to Corpus Christi, Brownsville and Mexico.

Quaint Restored Train Depot of Yesteryear
Jan 2018 • Solo
For sometime been meaning to check out this old depot. It used to be that such depots were more or less common in the South and South West and provided a means of transportation for many. The deport is very well restored and maintained on the outside and a fence prevents folks from venturing onto the tracks. Inside you will find a collection of pictures dating back to the early part of the 1900' as well as a myriad of train related items to include a real train bell, stakes, watches and other items associated with the early days of trains in this part of the country. It was until 1966 a passenger terminal providing train service up and down South Texas. What an adventure that must have been to go down to Brownsville and further up and back and just chilling and looking out the window. A lot of older folks like to come in and have coffee so if you want to really get to know this area, sit down and chat with them and watch your time go by very quickly. This is indeed, a nice museum dedicated to the years when passenger trains came through Kingsville.

Historic Train Depot
Apr 2017 • Couples
Walking into the depot was like taking a step back in time. The display cases were adorned with memorabilia of a by-gone era. Great place to visit especially if you are a train enthusiasts. Daily, according to the caretaker of the depot, trains continue to use these tracks.

Closed
Jul 2016
After I had difficulty in finding this I found a note on the door saying it was closed due to a lack of volunteers.
I understand this but maybe there should be a way of informing people.

Great restoration of an historic train depot
Jul 2016 • Solo
Interesting exhibits and still in the heart of downtown! Colored Trainmen of America Union began here. Display cases contain a variety of artifacts and memorabilia for the train enthusiast and it is right by the railroad tracks, so you can watch trains too. Restrooms open to the public. No charge.

Closed During Open Hours
Jul 2016 • Family
We really wanted to see the Depot Museum, but it was closed during open hours BOTH times we attempted to go on Friday and Saturday (July 15 and 16, 2016). It looked nice from what we were able to see through the windows, and the outside of the building was well kept and nicely maintained. But since we were on a limited schedule, we didn't want to call the number listed on the door to ask why no one was there during the posted open hours. Disappointing.

Great historical photos
Apr 2016 • Couples
Nice old depot, with great historical town photos. If you enjoy old train routes maps and pictures, this is your place. They have great pictures of old Kingsville, as well adjoining properties, such as the old hotels. If you are down in this area, it is worth a stop.

Train museum
Feb 2016 • Couples
Vistor center, public restroom, small train museum. Plenty of parking across the tracks. No charge for admission. The day went a city worker was present (her office was in the museum). She was very pleasant and answered all our questions.
