It is interesting to see the old train, but there isn't a lot to see. There is a beer pub in one of the cars, but they only serve beer, no food. The old station (now a hotel) was interesting.

Not what we thought it might be. It had to much of the tourist trap aura. Almost 40$ each to see the guitar museum, no senior discount.

We went here mainly because my 5 year old is crazy about trains. We were expecting to be able to look inside a couple cars or at least have some sort of tour type deal. WRONG!! All the train cars that are not private rooms...More

Train station has been lovingly restored to historic period. There is a restaurant, gift shop with reasonable prices, and you can stay in a boxcar, or in the hotel. (The hotel didn't look that great, like an old Holiday Inn.)

The Choo-Choo has a lovely park area that is perfect for sipping coffee or a soda and reflecting on the city's history. I would imagine it to be a great place to just let kids run for a minute while mom and dad catch their...More

After a period of decline, the station area is under fairly new ownership and is being restored and improved as a tourist attraction. It is great to see and be photographed by the Choo-Choo; and the bits that are open are good. We (particularly my...More

The buildings have been restored and the gardens are beautiful. It gives you a sense of the elegance of travel, years ago.

The best experience if available is to book a train car room. It is nostalgic and great weekend getaway while visiting downtown Chattanooga.
