Tricentennial Park and Battlefield

Tricentennial Park and Battlefield Review

This 25-acre complex is home to the Savannah History Museum, the Georgia State Railroad Museum, Battlefield Memorial Park, and the newest addition, the Savannah Children's Museum. This site offers an unbeatable introduction to the city and a full day of fun for the whole family. Located behind the Visitors Center, the history museum houses exhibits on Savannah's cultural and military history and includes a new temporary exhibit, "Women of Merit," honoring Savannahian Juliette Gordon Low and the 2012 Girl Scout Centennial. The Georgia State Railroad Museum preserves the legacy of the Central of Georgia Railway terminal facilities and support buildings. On site are numerous railcars and boxcars, working diesel and steam locomotives, a rare functioning railroad turntable, an iconic 125-foot smokestack, expansive model-train exhibit, and even original homes of the Railroad Ward District. The two musuems are separated by the park, site of the 1779 Siege of Savannah. Visitors can lunch inside an old dining car at the Whistle Stop Café.
