Commercial photo shoots, band shoots, commercials, features, TV-shows, documentaries, motion pictures, and in between, the Southeastern Railway Museum has a lot to offer inside and out.

The Duluth, Georgia-based Museum is a popular destination for film and TV productions in Hollywood South. Convenient to metropolitan Atlanta’s variety of production houses, we  have over 35 acres of space and 90 pieces of railroad equipment, the Museum is an authenic location for filming. With plenty of room to be a base camp or full-blown production, the Museum will do what we can to make your production a secure, relaxed and creative experience.

As a 501c3, production studios can also gain a tax incentive for filming at the Southeastern Railway Museum.
