This is a really small museum, free admission, focuses on the old Texas Interurban Railway, with only one car just outside of the front door. However, it is more interesting than its size would lead you to believe, and since it was constructed in the...More

After living in the area for decades, we finally stopped in to gather information for our granddaughter's project. Sorry we hadn't done it previously since this little museum provides great insight into the development of Plano and the Dallas area. The volunteer guides really love...More

Back in the early 1900s, there was an 'Interurban' trolley system that extended out 100 miles in several directions from downtown Dallas. Plano, TX was one of the stops on the route to Denison, TX. This museum preserves the history and artifacts from that era...More

It is okay, not much here but then again it is free. Nice trolley car to look in, but there is only one, If you are in the area go see it, don't make a special trip.

It's a museum, which is good enough. But then you add in docents (which on my trip were all 70+ year old men) who are passionate about the topic, and you get a day you'll never forget. Kids and adults will love this place, but...More

Interurban Railway Museum is a great stop in Plano, for train aficionados young and old. The museum offers a bit of education on electric trains, and historical information on the Interurban Railway. Located next to Haggard Park in Plano.

The place is so convenient that one tends to ignore it for just being a train car. I did so for almost 25+ years of living in the area. I happened to be in the park next door one day and decided to stroll through...More
