It features the role of the railroad in the growth of the state and Waycross. It has a locomotive, some rail cars, and a station house used as the information display area. The main building has small exhibits about the heritages of the ethnic groups, i.e. white, black and native american. It has a small display area explaining a traditional non-accompanied vocal group singing. It will host an exhibit from the Smithsonian Institute "New Harmonies: Celebrating American Roots Music" in the fall of 2013. While I was there I saw an exhibit of about 30 works of art by people with disabilities. This is a small community museum with small exhibits but some real gems of information. Staff is friendly and helpful. I am in no way connected with the Center. I visited in March 2013 and feel it deserves some attention and would be enjoyed by Trip Advisor members. « less
