Dive into Winter Garden history by visiting the Central Florida Railroad Museum! Chock full of memorabilia, there’s alway something to learn!

Central Florida Railroad Museum - Gitta SellsLocated in historic downtown Winter Garden, Florida, the Central Florida Railroad Museum is an integral part of its history! Thanks to the dedicated members of the Central Florida Railway Historical Society, Inc., visitors can get an insider’s look at fascinating railroad history! Here’s what you need to know about this must-see local attraction.

Deep Roots

This museum is the realized dream of the fourteen founding members of Central Florida’s Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society. Since its beginning in 1970, the chapter went to work, creating a home for a railroad museum for all to enjoy. In 1979, restoration began on the museum’s future home, which is now over half a century old.

This treasure-trove currently operates in cooperation with the Central Florida Railway Historical Society, the City of Winter Garden, and the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation.

What Can You Expect?

Visitors will be in awe of the various displays of railroad memorabilia. The Society is dedicated to preserving Winter Garden’s railroad history and strives to educate and maintain this collection for generations to come.

You can also catch special exhibits at local fairs and festivals, graciously sponsored by the Society. These include model train and railroadiana shows and train rides out of Winter Garden over the Florida Central Railroad!

Plan Your Visit!

The museum is currently open every Friday from 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM. Admission is FREE, but donations are always much appreciated. For visitors’ and staff’s safety, all guests must wear masks when inside the museum. No more than 12 guests are allowed to tour the museum at one time due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Location: 101 S Boyd St, Winter Garden, FL 34787
