Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum

Presented by Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum at Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum

Welcome to the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum, the official railroad museum of the state of Alabama. We’re located just south of Birmingham in Calera, Alabama. Our museum features operating standard gauge and narrow gauge trains, two restored depots, an indoor collection of railroad artifacts and memorabilia, and an outdoor collection of railroad cars, locomotives, and cabooses.

The museum is dedicated to the preservation, restoration, and operation of historically significant railway equipment. Our exhibits, operating railroads, and educational programs function as both a unique means of tourism and recreation, and also a way to preserve the rich history of Alabama and our nation.

We hope you’ll visit us to ride a train, look at our museum collection, and learn more about Alabama’s railroad history. Please contact us if you have any questions. We’ll see you at the depot!
