Until 50 years ago travelling by train was the only way to travel. Better and more luxurious than buses. Depots like this one were the focal point of thousands of cities and small towns like DeQuincy. Many of DeQuincy's residents were employees of the two main railroads (Kansas City Southern and Missouri Pacific). This museum recreates the train travel experience... More

A great outing for children, of all ages. The station is the original train depot from the early 1920's, with exhibits for all. There is even a real train whistle the kids can pull. Lots of fun for the little ones. Outside are train cars that you are allowed to climb in. Of course the train depot is now a... More

Every time I stop at this museum, something else has been added or restored so I learn/see something new. If you like railroad depots/museums/history, this is a little gem. There is no admission charge but a donation is appreciated. Katie was a particularly good docent. Very personable and knowledgeable with a passion for this piece of history. There are models...

A very nice outing for children who like trains. The depot is the original train station from 1923 with exhibits from that era and a real train whistle the children can pull. There is a very nice set up with a working model train. The children can push a button and the train whistle will blow. Lots of fun for... More

I love going to this museum throughout the year. They always have it nicely displayed and the kids love the model train display. Ask to pull the train horn!! They also have it wonderfully decorated for Christmas time. Also the Holiday express train also comes through during the holiday season every other year. GREAT FAMILY OUTING! :)

We visited the museum as part of the Louisiana Railroad Days Festival. As a host of the American Passenger Rail Heritage Foundaation's Let's Talk Trains podcast programs, I get to travel all over to many museums. The DeQunicy Railroad Museum is a fine example of what saving history is all about. The Museum is located in the former Kansas City... More
