Savannah's Tricentennial ParkTricentennial Park in Savannah, Georgia is home to three museums that bring this storied city’s past and present to life: The Savannah History Museum & Battlefield Memorial Park, the Georgia State Railroad Museum, and the Savannah Children’s Museum.

Savannah, Georgia has a long and storied history that begins in 1733, a rich and many colored tapestry of triumphs and tragedies that continues on to this day. Wherever you go in the city, history lurks nearby in all manner of guises. There’s so much history here, in fact, that figuring out what to go and see next can be overwhelming at times!

One great way to see a lot of Savannah history all at once is to visit Tricentennial Park, located in Savannah’s Landmark Historic District and containing three wonderful Savannah museums and one historic park:

The Savannah History Museum
The Savannah History Museum takes you through the city’s history from the American Revolution, through the Civil War, and up to the present day. Home to more than 10,000 artifacts, you’ll see interactive and informative exhibits on everything from Native Americans in the area to Johnny Mercer’s Oscar and Grammy awards, from the life of Girl Scout founder, Juliette Gordon Low to the 1902 Crestmobile car that predates the Model A Ford. The Savannah History Museum itself is a part of history, housed as it is in a National Historic Landmark: the Central of Georgia Railway passenger shed, used from the 1870s to the 1972!

Battlefield Memorial Park
Located across the street from the Savannah History Museum in the Tricentennial Park complex, Battlefield Memorial Park marks the spot where more than 8,000 troops of three armies fought the Battle of Savannah on October 9, 1779: the second bloodiest battle of the Revolutionary War. Today, Battlefield Memorial Park contains 800 granite stones representing those who died or were wounded during the Battle of Savannah, a monument on top of what is thought to be the original Spring Hill Redoubt, as well as an earthen replica of what the original redoubt would have looked like.

The Georgia State Railroad Museum
The Georgia State Railroad Museum is another National Historic Landmark in the Tricentennial Park complex, as it is located in the old Central of Georgia Railway facilities. The Georgia State Railroad Museum is the largest existing Antebellum railroad repair facility in the world, with a fully operational turntable, historic engines and rolling stock, and even the opportunity to tour the site by historic steam or diesel locomotive!

Savannah Children’s Museum
Located in the lower level and upper courtyard of what was once part of the Central of Georgia Railway, Savannah Children’s Museum is entirely outdoors with more than a dozen exhibits, including an exploration maze, a reading nook, and a sensory garden that are perfect for expanding children’s imaginations!
