The Southeastern Railway Museum in Duluth is a railroad museum and one of the top tourist attractions in the city. Founded in 1970 by the Atlanta Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, here you can check out over 90 items of rolling stock. The rolling stock includes steam locomotives, diesel locomotives, passenger cars, head-end equipment, freight cars, cabooses, maintenance-of-way equipment, and miscellaneous auxiliary equipment. Transit equipment like rail vehicles, rubber-tired vehicles, and MARTA-owned vehicles can also be found here. The museum is open from Wednesday to Saturday between 10 and 5.
Southeastern Railway Museum Reviews & Ratings
Lots to learn at this railway museum! My 6yr old and 2yr old had fun going in all the trains. They enjoyed the short train ride. They liked watching the model train inside the museum. Hidden gem of a museum in Gwinnett.
I found this place online, my 3 years old daughter loves trains and school buses. On a Saturday I decided to take her here. It’s run by volunteers, they depend on donations/volunteers/entrance fees etc., to make it possible to happen, so I tried to understand better, and be open minded and positive as I like to be with most things that I do in life. Parking lot was fine, it’s an outside museum and of course is full of what I expected, very antique trains & buses. My daughter had a blast running around and going inside “trying to drive/pilot it” and even “talked” inside of one of those buses on its microphones. I’m just glad she isn’t inside home watching an IPad and loved to watch her happy running around seeing other things. Definitely would recommend to my friends with small children.
Took my son here and he enjoyed himself. It was a little too hot for him at the end. They have a lot of antique trains, buses, and a few autos. If the little ones are into trains or buses this is the place to go. Volunteers help out a lot so check to make sure they are fully staffed the day you want to visit. This will ensure access to all the exhibits and rides. Don't expect pristine condition on the exhibits but any that are open are all safe to walk through.
Love this place! Great activity for any kind of family. My two year old loves the trains, riding both the small and large trains, and the bus section. Highly recommend!
Interesting place. Could be ran better if they had a sandwich shop. Better gift shop and an actual train ride.
