Aiken Visitors Center and Train Museum, Aiken

4.6
Aiken is known for many things… equine pursuits, the arts, sporting facilities, nature, and even playing a part in our country’s railroad birth and our fight in the Cold War era. With a history most small towns have never experienced the likes of; you’ll be enthralled with stories of our past and enchanted with the reality of a beautiful, charming, sophisticated town.

Aiken is a wonderful destination for a quick get-a-way or an extended stay, with countless activities to offer, many of which are free. Just 20 miles east of Augusta, GA, home of the Augusta National’s Masters Golf Tournament, Aiken offers a relaxing time for you to reconnect with friends and family. Golf, history, star gazing at our Planetarium, gardens, concerts, shows, plays, art, festivals, antiques, history, tours, outdoor adventure, parks, softball, baseball, tennis, equestrian events and more will keep you busy and returning for more.

  • Kids and adults of all ages will enjoy the train station! My family and I enjoy hearing and watching the live history performance. Find out about how the railroad made Aiken!
  • Every third week on Saturday, there are musicians playing Blue Grass and Country songs. Each take turns singing. Non rehearsed. Such fun. We try not to miss it. The museum has a wonderful train layout for all ages on the upper level. There is a bus tour of Aiken also offered on Saturday mornings.
