Come Downtown for the Memphis Train and Trolley Museum



If your kids love to ride the downtown trolley, don't forget to pay a visit to the Memphis Train and Trolley Museum (545 South Main at the Central Train Station). Opened in April 2012, this interesting museum celebrates the importance of the railroad to Memphis' development.  

The space houses artifacts, photographs, and three model train sets that kids love to watch chug around the miniature towns.

The museum will be open on two upcoming holidays: Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Monday, January 21st), and President's Day, Monday, February 18th.

Admission is $3/adults, $1/ages 3 to 12. Regular hours are: Friday & Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. & Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.

Though currently small, museum officials are developing plans to fund-raise for the Phase 2, which will double the museum's exhibition space to 4,000 square feet. The project is expected to be completed by May 1, 2014.
