If you’re a railroad fan this quaint little museum is for you. Dedicated primarily to the now defunct Tavares & Gulf 38 mile shortline railway, they also have mementos from numerous other railways. You can wander around on your own self guided tour or take...More

The Railroad Museum was such a surprise because the building didn't look that big. There was so many items, it was almost hard to see it all. It's well worth the stop to have a look.

I am a bit of a railroad buff, and have been to a lot of museums around the country. This one was not great versus others I've visited. Space was limited. Not well organized. Half the space is a room with chairs which seems wasted...More

We really enjoyed the hour we spent here. The lady told us so much about the area, really enjoyed visiting with her. Large collection of dishes from various railroads, so interesting to see which one was trying to out do the other. So much memorability...More

There are two RR museums in Winter Garden. This one was fun but not very instructive. We took the tour with a long time volunteer docent. He spent most of the time "wise cracking" rather than describing the history. On several occasions he would describe...More

Huge collection of train memorabilia for the train buff. I found the dinnerware from various train lines interesting.

If you are a rail fan, a history buff or a model railroader, this is a great stop if you are in central Florida. Although relatively small, the interior is packed with railroadiana. There is a small HO Scale diorama as well. The depot itself...More

If you visit downtown Winter Garden, you know it's a must to stop in the CFR Museum at least once. Explore railroad history while here, this isn't something you find in every town, so enjoy while here.
