  • Nice old train station and historic site. You're able to board the old train at the depot, and the building houses a small museum.  more »
  • I am from Cookeville and had never visited the Depot until recently. Wonderful stop if you just have a minute or two or if you need a place for kids to play. You can climb into the rail cars and there...  more »
  • A small but very nice train museum with lots to see and knowledgeable staff. It is very well maintained and a testimony for the citizens of Cookeville.  more »

  • We really enjoy this little gem here in Cookeville. This is a family-friendly place. Not too strenuous for little ones. They will enjoy seeing the Thomas the Train program which runs continuously. There are two antique railroad cars on the premises which are accessable for viewing. Entrance to the museum is free. You can make a goodwill donation if you choose. Each child that visits receives a gift bag. The staff is extremely friendly and good with kids. We bring all of our out-of-town guests to the museum and to this area of town. It is very quaint with lots of history. There are lots of places to eat, antique shops, and cute little boutiques to explore.
  • Really good park like museum. There are several train cars open for exploration.
  • Absolutely loved this gem in the south. The folks were great too this Yankee.
  • A local Cookeville icon and a must see. There are very friendly, knowledgeable people that work there. A great way to learn a little local history.
  • Fun little depot to visit. The staff is super friendly and it is nice to see a lesser known RR.
