We were in town for the farmers market and stopped by after it was over. We went inside and the two men behind the desk were so informative. They gave us some history and answered all of our questions. We love trains.

The Railroad Museum was such a surprise because the building didn't look that big. There was so many items, it was almost hard to see it all. It's well worth the stop to have a look.

I am a bit of a railroad buff, and have been to a lot of museums around the country. This one was not great versus others I've visited. Space was limited. Not well organized. Half the space is a room with chairs which seems wasted...More

There are two RR museums in Winter Garden. This one was fun but not very instructive. We took the tour with a long time volunteer docent. He spent most of the time "wise cracking" rather than describing the history. On several occasions he would describe...More

Huge collection of train memorabilia for the train buff. I found the dinnerware from various train lines interesting.
