The Southeastern Railway Museum
In operation since 1970, is Georgia’s Official Transportation History Museum. Occupying a 35-acre site in Duluth, Georgia, the museum offers exhibits dealing with the history and importance of transportation in the development of the state and the region. The collection includes roughly 90 pieces of railroad rolling stock, including historic locomotives, passenger and freight cars, and maintenance vehicles, as well as a restored 1971 passenger depot that once served the City of Duluth. The museum also exhibits historic automobiles, firefighting equipment, and buses from MARTA and its predecessors. Visitors can also enjoy rides on an antique caboose or passenger car pulled by a vintage engine, or enjoy a nostalgic turn on a fully restored miniature park train.
Because many of the exhibits are outdoors, the Southeastern Railway Museum varies its operating hours seasonally. Current days and hours, along with educational programming and other information, are available on the museum website at Southeastern Railway Museum
Gwinnett History Museum/Lawrenceville Female Seminary
Originally built in the 1830s, this historic building was first used as a finishing school for the county’s young women. After being destroyed by fire, it was reconstructed in 1855 and was later converted into a ‘civic center’ for community activities, and at one time, housed a local radio station! It houses the Gwinnett History Museum, with exhibits relating to early Gwinnett County farming, textiles, schools, and more! Gwinnett History Museum/Lawrenceville Female Seminary
