If you are a train enthusiast, this is a must visit this museum. You can walk about and look at the engines and take a short train ride with a tour guide and experience the turn table for the train!

So glad we made time to visit this museum. We were able to walk around and see many different trains on display. There are many presentations throughout the day. While we were there, we were able to tour a Pullman that had been restored. We also had an opportunity to speak with a couple of the engineers and learn about... More

This tour was well enjoyed by the train fans in our group. Our guide did an amazing job, sharing her passion for the trains on the property. This is also a wonderful stop for families with little people as they but a play area in the middle, using part of a historic building.

Great restoration and a work in progress. Civil War History - Sherman"s Bow Ties" and all. Well maintained. ALSO has several great model train displays in most gauges that the kids will enjot.

If you like trains, you'll enjoy visiting this museum. Many really neat old engines in a great setting. The roundhouse itself is very cool. I enjoyed walking the grounds and viewing the displays. Might be a little boring for younger children. There are a few miniature train displays. Great history.

There were only a couple a cars that were completely restored that you could look at, but only at certain times with a tour guide. There was another tour that centered on the equipment that was used to repair the cars. I didn't do that one because I didn't want to stay that much longer. Other than that you just... More

This was an interesting and fun experience. We went on a guided tour of different kinds of train cars, learned about the site and its history in Savannah, and even got to try a handcar. You can also wander on your own and read about the different parts of the site, but I recommend doing some of the tours and... More

This was probably the highlight of our vacation! My fiancé is obsessed with trains so we knew immediately we had to come here. We arrived first thing in the morning when the opened so we looked around before the first tour started. Will was our tour guide and he was so informative and personable, he even pulled my fiancé aside... More

Unfortunately we were unable to tour on a weekend when you can ride the train, so we paid the $27 for our family to tour. We found we were unable to touch or come aboard any of the trains, just look at them parked. There were signs posted for tours of the dining cars, but noone came to give the... More

As railway museums go, this is in need of some serious investment. The buildings, notably the engine shed and associated turntable, are remarkable - almost European in style. The rolling stock is clearly being refurbished over time but by and large its pretty dilapidated. This was a pricey visit, even if the ticket gave us two days' access. Frankly, it... More
