Martin and Sue King Railroad Heritage Museum

Located in downtown Cleveland, Mississippi, the Railroad Heritage Museum is like what it’s brochure says, “A walk through History.”

Railroads opened up the Mississippi Delta and made this special place what it is today. The museum has exhibits which depict life along the tracks in the early days.

There is also a large diorama featuring toy trains and Delta historical sites that runs almost the length of the museum. Kids and adults will both love looking at the toy trains and towns.

Museum hours are: Weekdays 9:00 – 12:00 and 1:00 – 4:00. Saturday 1:00 – 4:00. Stop by Cleveland and check this museum out. It’s a true treasure of the Mississippi Delta.

  1. Keep it up Cliff. I really enjoyed reading the entire site; even though it took a while, I’m all caught up now. Looking forward to more interesting posts. Have you ever heard of the old town and river port of Peyton? The really old cemetery is still there back up in the woods. It has some markers from 1836! My granddad used to put his cotton on steam boats there before WWI. It’s south of Austin on the “Old River Slue” that runs in to the Tunica Cutoff at OK Pocket. Holler at me anytime and I’ll take you over there.
