The Railroad Museum of South Florida operates a 3,200-square foot museum located in Lakes Regional Park. The museum is open 7 days a week, or per our shorter summer schedule listed below.
Located in the museum are “S” and “N” scale model train layouts, as well as an overhead “G” scale train, a “live steam” scale locomotive, and artifacts including an authentic brass bell from a steam locomotive (one ring per visitor, please!), rail tracks, lanterns, ticket punches, spikes, tools, and baggage carts on display. There is an interactive locomotive simulator, featuring the actual control console from a decommissioned diesel locomotive. The museum also houses a movie theater, and gift shop with a window located inside for those who want to make a purchase of key chains, hats, T-shirts, bandanas, jewelry and much more!
