Very cool place! Try to go when they are having tours so you can go inside some of the restored cars. Lots of photo ops here too, if you're into photography.

They have quite a few restored engines and cars here was well as some original train yard buildings. You do have to take a guided tour to see some of the executive cars, but it is included with your admission.

Love the Railroad Museum. We got there shortly before closing and the tour guides stayed to answer our questions and gave us a tour of a few of the cars. Very helpful! We love the "history"...incredible brick-work...

There are many things to see here in the Railroad museum, but the bench used in the movie "Forrest Gump" is fun to see. There is also an old steam locomotive, civil war items, etc.

A small museum! There is no too much thing inside! If you are not a train fans, not visit here. If yes, it will be a great place for you!

The exhibits are really interesting but I think they are desperate for funds. Still, it was interesting for my husband who is a train junkie. Gift shop needs a total overhaul and should start selling interesting souvenirs rather than kid stuff.

This is an important yet poorly funded piece of Savannah history. For the old engines that pulled the passenger trains to the Executive cars, caboose and the segregation car, it tells history both bright and dark.the old roundhouse still stands. The gift shop is mediocre...More

This museum is for the train lover. It is not for kids that are only somewhat interested in trains. The museum more of a guided tour and outdoors.
