    Is it true that all of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad archives are now at you museum? My father worked for them before WWII until his death in 1961. I am looking for any file info or pictures regarding my father.

      Hi Tammy,
      I am sorry, our tour of the trains is not handicap accessible. However our museum is. We offer tickets to view the museum only at 1/2 price.

    I am interested in having my wedding at your location! The building is beautiful and my fiance loves trains! I think it would be a perfect fit. I didn’t see the pricing to rent out the space online. It would be a Saturday or Sunday in September or October. We are still trying to pick a date! Thanks for your time. Hope to hear from you!
