Ennis Railroad & Cultural Heritage Museum - ллллл (Rated 5/5 Stars)


We recently visited the Ennis Railroad & Cultural Heritage Museum located alongside the tracks in Ennis, Texas. This is a very interesting little museum with an exceptional collection of railroad and cultural memorabilia. The museum features a large collection of items related to the Houston and Central Texas Railroad which ran through the town.

There is a large diorama of the old engine roundhouse that once existed just north of the museums location. The museum also has a large collection of rare china, and a large display of vintage locomotive models hand-crafted by the original collector.

On the day we were there, the docent was in full railroad conductor uniform complete with his working railroad pocket watch. His narrative brought such a personal touch to our day at the museum.

The highlight of our day was the MKT caboose on static display just outside the museum. We were able to go inside the caboose and explore this fine example of how a caboose looked while in service on the railroad.

For more information about this wonderful little museum, visit the City of Ennis Convention and Visitors Bureau website at .
