Hidden gem!

This place is small, but the train cars are a blast to go through. Great place for photos too! We did senior pics here and loved the setting.

We were travelling from Nashville to Memphis and wanted somewhere to break the journey. After searching on here we decided on this place. Good call. It’s less than 10 miles from the I-40. We were made to feel very welcome by the super enthusiastic volunteers. There is a lot of rail memorabilia squashed in here. There is also a large... More

A great stop to get the local history on a very historic rail yard and depot. The even have a train layout of what the entire Jackson Railyard was like. Everyone was very, very friendly to us.

Attendant on duty (an older woman) was very rude. We walked in and she started barking at us to sign the guestbook. We then wandered around the little museum and then she came over and kept asking if we were planning to sell the photos we were taking....which was a really random question---I guess it was because my husband has...

We only had a few minutes, and the museum wasn't really open yet, but the restored train station and cars were filled with historical artifacts and information that we did not know previously. A little hidden gem off the main road in Jackson. Deano

My husband and I were in Jackson and decided to stop in. We were the only people there so the guy spent the whole time with us sharing information. The depot is over 10" years old. There is a dining car and caboose you can go into. There are tons of pictures articles and artifacts to see. A running train... More

It was really cool to take my two young boys here. Mr. David was really informative and helped us to know the history behind the railroad, memorabilia, and tools. He ran the trains for us and encouraged the kids to push the green buttons that triggered the lights. It was fun, informative, and interactive. Go!

A lot of interesting information about Jackson and the railroads in general. Hands on displays, a huge model train set, and caboose and cars you actually walk through. Don't miss the chance to pull the old train whistle as you leave! You could probably spend all day looking at all the information there, but an hour or so is probably... More
