What You'll Get


History is like Frankenstein's monster: all it takes to make it come alive is the right education, a large body of artifacts exhumed from the earth, and an electrical storm. Learn from the past with today's Groupon: for $6, you get two general admission tickets to the Gold Coast Railroad Museum (up to a $12 value). Children under the age of 2 receive free admission to the museum. Dedicated to preserving the history of locomotive lifestyles in Florida and beyond, the Gold Coast Railway Museum brings visitors aboard for tours of the nation's traveling past. Groupon holders can steam through nine exhibits featuring 40 pieces of rolling stock. Marvel at the presidential opulence of FDR's private railcar the Ferdinand Magellan, railway relics from bygone lines such as the Western Pacific and Atlantic Coast Line, and the fossilized remains of a prehistoric caboose. Rail fans of all ages can delight in the 20-minute train rides offered most weekends for an additional fee ($2.50–$12 per person depending on train).

About Gold Coast Railroad Museum


The Gold Coast Railroad Museum began in 1956, when train enthusiast William J. Godfrey chanced upon the miles of abandoned railroad track snaking through the pineland of University of Miami’s southern campus. He imported a newly retired steam engine to the premises, and a tribute to railroading history began.

Now in a new location in Miami proper, the museum continues to honor trains’ role in American history, with nine exhibits on locomotives, passenger cars, and the Richmond’s Naval Air Station’s fleet. Visitors can hop aboard a full-size diesel locomotive passenger coach, or take a ride a miniature children’s railroad that’s ideal for transporting shipments of Lincoln logs. Alternatively, they can run motorized or free-wheeling trains through a model railroad, which zips through mountain tunnels and circles around to-scale landscapes.
