  • Been on a few old time railroads, but this was the only time I had been in a two level passenger car! We took the Santa train with my grand kids. The "guide" was entertaining and told us a lot about t...  more »
  • The Museum is easy to find off I-77 outside of Columbia , SC. My husband loves trains so we purchased a night train ride that included a BBQ dinner. $30 per person. We arrived early and toured the gal...  more »
  • For the last year plus, I have driven by Interstate exits pointing to the SC Railroad Museum, but have until now not had the opportunity to stop by. A couple of weekends back I made a day trip to the ...  more »
  • This railroad has a great museum to walk through. You get to see what a travel train was really like. I went to see the Orient Express and I realise now there is no way they could get those camera angles except on a set. The real trains were so narrow. And those times elegant but limited on space. I loved the train ride ....worth every penny.
  • Had a blast, took my son to see santa on the train. Awesome Santa, great people and they're all volunteers. If we were closer, I'd too join their membership.
  • My 3 year old son, Danger, is a hard little kid to please, but he had a BLAST at the SCRM. The train ride was just long enough to keep his attention, and was well worth the ride from Columbia. He enjoyed playing with the wooden trains in the gift shop and looking at the railroad artifacts in the displays. His favorite part was walking in the old passenger train cars, post office car, and the baggage car. I will definitely be bringing him back.
  • We love coming here every year for the Pumpkin Train. My grandson loves the ride and so do I. They do a great job of having fun stations where the kids can play games and decorate their chosen pumpkin.
  • The museum was closed when I was in the area but I'm looking forward to returning and visiting. I'm hoping to bring my granddaughters to experience this small sliver of significant American history. Write more when I can visit
