Southern Arizona Transportation Museum


Tucson wouldn’t be the thriving metro it is without the railroad industry, and at the Southern Arizona Transportation Museum the steam locomotive is the star. Explore a variety of indoor and outdoor exhibits showcasing the effect of the railway in Tucson. From the Steam Locomotive #1673 that starred in Oklahoma in 1955 to the interactive exhibits perfect for kids and the depot model, there’s something for everyone.

Check out the Holliday/Earp sculpture and grab a complimentary pair of audio phones for a tour through living history. Special accommodations for large groups up to 150 people are available as well as exclusive times and days for your special outing. Otherwise, admission is free and the museum is open Tuesday – Sunday.

All Aboard

Formerly the Southern Pacific Railroad Depot, the city purchased the site in 1998 and restored it along with three adjacent buildings to original 1941 glory. Special events that make this a family-friendly destination include Locomotive Saturdays, where you can chat with expert volunteers, ring the locomotive bell and take photos with life-size sculptures of Doc Holiday and Wyatt Earp .

The Oral History Program, Library Holdings and archives provide fantastic research for scholars and students, while the gift shop is the perfect place to find a unique keepsake or souvenir. Don’t miss out on this gem of a Tucson destination.
