Huntsville Depot and Museum

Huntsville Depot and Museum
320 Church Street Northwest

The Huntsville Depot and Museum is one of the country’s oldest remaining railroad buildings; visitors can climb aboard locomotives and view Alabama’s largest public model railroad, Civil War exhibits and graffiti written by soldiers. The museum also offers a “Kid’s Corner” complete with train puzzles, costumes and maps. Just blocks away is the family-friendly Big Spring Park, as well as numerous dining establishments for a hungry family.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Depot served as the local passenger house & the corporate offices for the eastern division of the Memphis & Charleston Railroad. An active passenger station until 1968, the original depot building now stands as a symbol of Huntsville's transportation history and city growth.
