  • This is a little like rummaging around Huntsville's attic. Several floors of exhibits. Steam Railway oriented of course.  more »
  • History is important and understanding the impact that this railroad station had in the growth of Huntsville was fascinating. The layout was impressive - and the actual facilities were well maintained...  more »

  • I just loved bringing my two boys to the train depot! My boys are 4 and 2 so we didn't do the actual museum part, but they loved going in and out of all the big trains. The air conditioned play room with smaller trains and toys was a nice break from the hot sun and helped our 4 year old (who has mild autism) settle down and transition to the big trains(which he was scared of at first). My husband and I had fun climbing on things too! 😊 The sand pit with buckets and shovels was a big hit as well. Plenty of shade everywhere and a nice covered pincic area for a quick snack. We even got to see two real trains go by, which made my boys extremely happy. 😁
  • The grounds are fun and peaceful and the museum holds a plethora of knowledge and stories dating back to the Civil War. Also, the building is haunted by ghosts.
  • It's where beer fest is. It's clean and has a nice layout. Would go again
  • Awesome place to walk around and see trains and the veteran's memorial.
  • Great history here in Huntsville, Al. Learn about the railroad system that ran through the city.
