Texas Transportation Museum was begun in 1964. It's a great place, built and run by volunteers who like this stuff so much we are willing to work for free! There are now a few part-time staff members, but we remain very much a volunteer organization. We receive no government funding of any kind and are totally dependent on the income we make from visitors. We must be doing something right if we are still here after over 50 years! We are open three days a week and offer scheduled train rides on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
We hope you find our site informative about the museum and the history of transportation in and around San Antonio. We really hope you will come to visit us and experience our collections, our working railroad and the various smaller scale train layouts that we operate.
News / Upcoming Events
Model Train Celebration Day
TTM will be all about model trains on Saturday March 25. You are invited to come out and help us celebrate the world's greatest hobby. All our layouts will be running. We will have extra basic layouts set for you to run YOUR model rains on. If you have a train set - G or O gauge, HO or N - that you haven't run in a while, bring it out and see if it still works. If you want to try to sell it or other model railroad related items, we will have tables for you to display them. There will also be a couple of local vendors as well. Just a great day for the model railroad enthusiast in your family.

TTM Turns 50 !!!
TTM celebrated its 50th anniversary on January 1, 2014. It was on this day back in 1964 that the museum's articles of incorporation went into effect. After a few years at Pearl Brewery, TTM relocated to its current site on Wetmore Road where we have been operating ever since.
