  • This is a real cool museum located near the bridge. If you’re a history freak this is the place for you.  more »
  • The railroad museum was interesting but a little boring and not enough to see unless you scheduled your time when they opened some of the cars and exhibits. For $10 it was a little limited  more »

  • We could not understand how this run down place has such good reviews. The only redeeming factors are the train ride if you can get tickets and the hand cart (which is only open 15 minutes per day).
  • Great place to visit! Very interactive, the little train tour is neat. Many cool exhibits as well. I hope this place gets the money it needs to expand, there's still so much more that can come out of that place.
  • This is a great place to visit in Savannah! They have dinner a great job restoring a full service train yard. The staff is very knowledgeable about the history of the place, and the steps they are taking in the restoration. They spent over 30 min with us demonstrating the different equipment and showing the changes that had been made over time. This was our second time there, and we still learned more. We will be back again as it is one of our favorite places.
  • Great place with an immense amount of history! Staff (Terry) knows everything you need to know about the place and they are do I g a great job preserving the history of this building!
  • Great fun for the whole family. Our boys all loved it (10, 8, and 2). The staff are a fountain of great history and information.
