South Florida Railway Museum
Located in the historic 1926 Old Seaboard Air Line Railway Station, the South Florida Railway Museum showcases the history of railroading in Deerfield Beach and the surrounding communities. It features three model train layouts, a model train locomotive collection, and numerous other items including whistles, tools, and bells. The building itself is listed on the National Register of Historic Places for its importance to local tourism and the economy, and for its Mediterranean Revival architecture. Today, Amtrak and Tri-Rail (southern Florida's commuter rail system) use the station.
