Museum and Gift Shop
The waiting room of the Depot
The museum and gift shop is the railroad depot restored by the Tarpon Springs Area Historical Society. The beauty of this old depot will be showed to you best in photos. Any photo you see may be enlarged by clicking on it.

We hope you enjoy your view of our Depot/Museum.

The Depot Museum has now been officially designated as a Welcome Center, working in partnership with the Tarpon Springs Chamber of Commerce.   The Chamber recently purchased an additional brochure rack for the Depot that doubles the number of brochures that can be displayed.   

The Depot Welcome Center concentrates on sharing information about Tarpon Springs businesses and attractions.  Its brochure racks include materials on local museums, restaurants, and recreational opportunities such as cruises.

The attractive new WELCOME CENTER sign on the front of the building encourages visitors as well as local residents to enter and browse through the brochures or ask for information.

Hours for the Museum and Gift shop are Wednesday -Saturday from 12 pm - 3 pm.
Next we will view the office and the office equipment originally used in the train depot.
