The Gold Coast Railroad Museum is dedicated to preserving, exhibiting, and operating historic equipment.
Founded in 1957, GCRM was built on the former Naval Air Station Richmond (NASR), the second largest WWII airship base in the United States. With over three miles of tracks, the NASR was an ideal place to build a railroad museum.
The Gold Coast Railroad Museum became one of the three official Florida State Railroad Museums in 1984. Besides its rail cars, the museum includes a model railroad room, a Naval Air Station Richmond exhibit, Thomas play tables, and multiple displays of rail equipment.
GCRM operates as a non-profit organization, and devotes itself to instilling the rich history of rail in each of its guests.
