  • I enjoyed visiting this museum. The train exhibits were interesting and I really enjoyed seeing the diorama of the Vicksburg siege. Made a lot of sense of what we saw at the Vicksburg Military Park.

  • Model train settings were fantastic. The 3D model of the Vickburg battle really helped me visualize what it must have been like. Wish I had seen it before going to the battlefield park. Model ships were interesting. Did not realize there were so many ironclads and submarines in the Civil War.
  • Good mix of train, naval and Vicksburg history. Models of the different ships used on the CW rivers were especially helpful and interesting. Not too much railroad history and how it affected travel & commerce. Worth dropping by for an hour or two.
