Savannah Roundhouse Railroad Museum


Originally the site of the Central Georgia Railway Headquarters, the Roundhouse Railroad Museum was considered to be the most up-to-date, revolutionary facility of its time. Handling freight, passengers, maintenance and manufacturing at this single location, the Railway Headquarters was an indispensable site for a number of years.
 After being abandoned in the 1960’s, several local enthusiasts worked to save the buildings from destruction and today the railway is a National Historic Landmark, a “Save America’s Treasures” Site, and Georgia’s State Railroad Museum.

More than 40,000 visitors each year tour through the historic railroad structures and learn about the story of the railroad industry in Georgia.

Exhibits include a large collection of steam and diesel locomotives, rail cars, steam-powered machinery, model railroads, and a 126-foot brick smokestack. A large model train layout of Savannah, as well as exhibits explaining steam engines and belt-driven machinery are also thrilling to view. The massive operating turntable in the middle of the Roundhouse was restored and is a favorite among guests to the museum.
