Coney Island Family Day
September 1 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
In honor of our exhibit, Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland, stop by the museum for a fun-filled day celebrating this American destination. Free admission to the exhibit will be offered during the event.
The Temple Railroad and Heritage Museum is housed in Temple’s historic Santa Fe Depot. The permanent exhibits explore working and traveling on the railroad with an emphasis on the Santa Fe Railway. The museum also hosts a range of changing temporary exhibits, as well as education programs, and special events.
The museum’s collection of railroad equipment is displayed on the grounds, next to an active railroad yard where rail-fans can observe daily operations and traffic of the BNSF and Amtrak. The beautiful Santa Fe Gardens, Whistlestop Playground, and Temple Visitor Center are also nearby.
