Outdoor Education

The Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum is not only a portal to the historical wonders of railroading but also a haven for outdoor education enthusiasts. Nature and train tracks have always had a symbiotic relationship, with routes meandering through scenic landscapes, unveiling the beauty of the natural world from a unique vantage point. As trains chug along, they offer passengers unparalleled views of verdant fields, towering mountains, and meandering rivers, serving as both a mode of transport and a classroom on wheels.

From flora and fauna sightings during train rides to understanding the environmental impact of railroads, delve into an immersive learning experience with us.
