Texas Transportation Museum

News / Upcoming Events

Museum to be closed due to COVID-19 until further notice

TTM loves our visitors. We consider you partners in helping to keep San Antonio’s rich transportation heritage alive in South Texas. At the same time, all the experts say that the best way to end COVID-19 is to deny it the opportunity to spread. So, in keeping with this advice, TTM will be closed until it is safe for everyone to be able to be together again. We look forward to seeing y’all soon.


Cab rides in our diesel-electric locomtives

TTM is delighted to announce that we are now offering cab rides in our diesel-electric locomotives during our regularly scheduled passenger services. The maximum number of passengers that can ride in the cab at any one time is two. There is a small additional fee of $5 per person.

Here’s a link for more details: Cab Rides at TTM


Track improvement donation request

The tracks at the Texas Transportation Museum in San Antonio may not be as long as others but they are just as wide and just as hard to maintain, especially in August. Summer 2019 has seen a lot of both volunteer and professional work being done on our existing lines even as we put together a plan to about double their length. If you would like to make a donation – large or small – towards these efforts, here is a link that makes it super easy. You can click on the “Make a Donation” tab and get it taken care of in seconds – no hours under the broiling sun for you – or you can mail us a check at the address provided. Or make a donation in person – plastic or paper – at TTM the next time you are there.

TTM is a registered 501(c)(3) charity.

Here’s the link: Longhorn & Western Track Extension Donations


Next steam powered train ride day – to be announced

The next date for scheduled steam powered train rides at TTM will be announced as soon as the COVID-19 restrictions on the museum being open are lifted. #1, our 1925 Baldwin 0-4-0 steam locomotive will operate on a demand basis between around 10 AM to 1 PM. (with steam, all times are approximate.) No additional charge for admission. Our antique diesel electric locomotives will power the other scheduled train rides on this day. Come early to see steam being raised and a whole bunch of fun switching operations. The museum opens at 9 AM.


National holiday closure policy

The museum is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday except Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Years Day. The museum may be closed on additional days before and after each of these holidays.


Bad weather closure policy

During severe weather events, the museum may delay opening, close early or close entirely. Please call us at (210) 490-3554 to confirm. While we will always try to post such closures on this web site and on our Facebook
