Georgia State Railroad Museum at Tricentennial ParkWhether you’re a train enthusiast, history fan, or just looking for something to fill an afternoon, you’ll enjoy a visit to the Georgia State Railroad Museum at Tricentennial Park in downtown Savannah.

The Georgia State Railroad Museum (GSRM) may not have as big a collection of locomotives and cars as some others in the country but that’s okay. None of the others have what it does. Namely, the most complete antebellum railroad complex of its kind in the world.
