  • Very educational for our student groups. They learn all about the railroad, it's history in GA, the hobos and their signs used to communicate. A definite stop! Fun and educational! 
  • This was our last visit after a long day walking and visiting around the city. We arrived late in the afternoon and the place was closing down when I looked into an open window of the huge maintenance...  more »
  • Spent several enjoyable hours walking the grounds of this historic site. Rode in the carriage of a diesel train, narrated by Susannah. The high point of the visit was a 60-minute private tour of the b...  more »

  • If you want to see huge old school trains than this is your place! One of the largest I've seen! I loved this place! Only 2 bathrooms so locate them early!
  • I highly enjoyed all the old railcars that you can examine both inside and outside! You get to see everything from the engine to the inside seating area! I was a little too early, and had someplace to go later in the day, but I unfortunately did not get to go on the tours that were available. I also went when it was raining, and since most of the museum is outdoors, I would suggest at least bringing an umbrella if it is forecasted to rain (I did not have one and I got soaked). But regardless, it was a fun museum! I live that the $10 entrance fee is useable for 3 days after the date of purchase; so if you're in Savannah for more than a day, you can contribute to drop by. They also have free parking, and it's right by the Savannah visitor center where there are other museums, gift shops, and trolleys!
  • The Railroad Museum is a fantastic wedding venue! It’s not the cheapest but the rustic look of the setting means that you can keep your decorations minimal because this place is beautiful as is. Working with Natalie at the Railroad Museum was great and she was always super quick to respond to any requests we had. All of our guests commented on what a great venue this was for a wedding!
  • Kids had a great time here as did the adults. Enjoyed the train ride, history lesson, and items on display. Stopped here based on a search of things to do in the area with kids and it did not disappoint.
  • Honestly I work there and what I enjoy about the site in general is that we have one of the very few running steam locomotives left in the United States. We actually do train rides of our site with it. Plan your days though because we switch to the diesel locomotive while the steam one is under maintenance.
