N.C. Transportation Museum
We are the museum that moves you! This family-friendly place is a 60-acre site filled with interesting exhibits and special events. Four large exhibit buildings represent the remaining structures of the historic Spencer Shops, once Southern Railroad's largest steam locomotive repair facility on the east coast. The Bob Julian Roundhouse, the largest remaining operational roundhouse in North America, is filled with locomotives and rail cars of the past. The Bumper to Bumper exhibit in the Flue Shop houses vintage and antique vehicles from the early 1900s to the 1960s. The massive Back Shop houses even more vintage cars, the restoration of the Piedmont Airlines DC-3, and special events.
Opening times: Tuesday to Saturday: 9 AM to 5 PM, Sunday: Noon to 5 PM
