  • This is a small museum with some interesting historical items and information. The train cars are nice to look at and make for good photos. The model train that shows a bygone era is fun to watch.  more »

  • Kind of a small place but the history in the feel of the Old South is still there it was a nice day trip probably because it only took like a half an hour 45 minutes LOL
  • While we ate our yummy ice cream from across the street we sat on the benches at the depot and just enjoyed the view and ambiance of this great little town. This is a must stop through TN
  • A nice place to learn about local and time period history. Took about 15 or 20 minutes to go through.
  • Love this place. It's a short stop on a tour of Cookeville with very friendly, knowledgeable staff. Get an ice cream cone across the street and stroll through this place some day. Not bad. Entry is always FREE.
  • If you want a hands-on learning opportunity about Cookeville's role in the Tennessee Central Railroad, this is the place to go. The 509 is renovated with a viewing panel, and Cream City Ice Cream is right across the road. Check out Ralph's just south on S Cedar for Tennessee's best donuts
