“Very nice love the station.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

this was a very nice museum had a lot to look at and do. they have this in a old train station that was built in 1929 also is still as a train station Amtrak stop every day. The people that work the museum were very nice we enjoyed talking to them. they have some old train cars that you can look at. the price was very cheap to go though it.

“Pitstop Between Austin and Dallas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

This is a good stop off point between Austin and Dallas. The museum was the second floor of the old station which is neat. They had a bunch of model trains behind glass which were neat and some other memorabilia of all kinds. The static displays were all locked (except the engine) and are starting to get run down. The engine however was open and you could pull levers, etc.

I would recommend the train museum in Galveston (even after all of the hurricane damage from a few years ago) over this one, but if you need a 30-45 minute pitstop, don't hesitate to stop here.

“Great railroad musuem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

This museum is a treat. They have lots of railroad memorabilia and plenty of posters, pictures, narratives etc to guide you through the 6 or 8 rooms of displays they have. Very interesting to see.

Plus, as a bonus, it is right on the BNSF active tracks and there is a small yard located there. Good place to view trains.

“choo, choo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2013

Interesting displays about the local train history. There are displays of different kinds of trains. Christmas brings a train display with a Christmas town that everyone loves. They have kids activities and computer games. There are two locomotives for the kids to play on.
