The Naples Depot Museum contains many delightful exhibits both large and small for train enthusiasts. Also featured on site is the Naples Train Museum. 

Founded in 2000, the depot museum is housed inside the restored Seaboard Coast Line Railway Station. Inside, exhibits harken back to the Roaring Twenties and the golden age of railroads. Also among the collections are exhibits and fascinating placards with information detailing Florida railway’s relationship with racial segregation. You can also get up close and personal with several restored vehicles including a 1950s Chevrolet and an antique swamp buggy.

At the Naples Train Museum, kids and not-too-tall adults, can ride along an outdoor railway that loops around the property. Inside is a massive model train set for visitors to admire. It’s a quick walk through the museums, and if you’re a sucker for old maps or miniature train towns, this is a must-see.
