The South Florida Railway Museum is located in the historic Seaboard Air Line Railway station in Deerfield Beach. The station was built in 1926 and is a fine example of the Mediterranean style architecture with its arched entryway, stucco walls, and barrel tile roof. The structure is listed as a Historic Site with the Florida Department of Archives and the National Register of Historic Places.
For many years, the station and surrounding area warehouses was an important produce-shipping hub. The Army Air Corps took over the local warehouses in 1942 to store materials for building a military base in nearby Boca Raton. The historic station has welcomed many historic passenger trains such as the Orange Blossom Special and the Seaboard's famous Silver Fleet to the City of Miami, East Coast Champion and the Sunset Limited. The station is still served by Amtrak and Tri-Rail, South Florida's commuter rail system.
The museum is open to the public on Wednesdays 6PM – 9PM and Saturdays 12PM – 4PM.
In addition to easy access to Deerfield's white, sandy beaches and the International Fishing Pier, The Wyndham Deerfield Beach Resort provides convenient access to the South Florida Railway Museum.
