Virginia Museum of Transportation Inc

Southern, Virginia

The Virginia Museum of Transportation  originally formed as a partnership of the Norfolk & Western Railway and the City of Roanoke, first opened its doors in 1963 in Wasena Park along the Roanoke River. Although all modes of transportation were represented, the Museum focused on telling the story of Roanoke’s rich rail heritage.

The Museum’s road exhibits present a history of transportation ranging from hand and horse drawn vehicles to modern high powered cars and trucks. Vehicles just like those on exhibit transported freight to and from the building that is now home to the Virginia Museum of Transportation. Similarly, passengers traveled in autos like those in our exhibits to the nearby passenger terminal to begin or end railroad journeys.
