Virginia Museum of Transportation, Roanoke

4.5
#1 of 8 in Museums in Roanoke
The Museum is large and much of our collection is outside. We recommend comfortable walking shoes and clothing appropriate for outdoor temperatures.

Please note the parking spaces directly adjacent to the front of the Museum are always free. Unfortunately, the parking lot does not belong to us and there is a fee to park in the parking lot.

  • This museum has everything a train lover could ever want! Many huge trains parked out back next to the tracks they also had different model train layouts or train cut out sections. Our tour guide was really into his job and knew everything about all of the trains and told interesting stories. They also had a kids room with a wooden train table. Our 3 year old loved this and we plan to return even though we live hours away.
  • Great museum but I have to take a Star off for the limited Sunday hours and admission price. There's a lot here but it doesn't seem very well organized. Not as chaotic as some museum collections it's clearly sectioned off into rail, bus, cars, aviation but poorly curated, I always felt there was a lot more information about the items they displayed than they were telling me.
