Museum hours vary seasonally, please see hours for our current schedule. For details about our special events, please see our Events Calendar.
Ride in restored cabooses behind restored antique diesel locomotives, stand next to the massive driving wheels of the locomotive that once pulled passenger trains to Key West on the “railroad that went to sea,” tour the business car that helped bring the Olympics to Atlanta, pose on the platform of the private car once used by President Warren G. Harding, and see just how green Southern Railway green can be as you walk the length of the diesel-electric locomotive that ran the point on the last Crescent before AMTRAK assumed control of the famous train.
The mission of the Southeastern Railway Museum is to provide an educational atmosphere that will vividly bring to life the cultural, technological and historical importance of transportation to our region. This is accomplished through the preservation, conservation and display of publications, memorabilia and equipment; operation of historic equipment; and the portrayal of the lives of those people who created and provided that transportation.

Kids of all ages will love this wonderful little museum, which features a better collection of trains than most rail yards do. Here you can tour passenger coaches, a business car, an early refrigerator car, and both a diner and a WWII troop kitchen. Climb aboard and explore the vintage steam locomotives, cabooses and old wooden freight cars from the early days of rail transport.
