Permanent Exhibits: Our permanent exhibit galleries are located on the second floor of the museum. Our permanent exhibits focus on railroad history with an emphasis on the Santa Fe and railroads in Texas. We also have a changing exhibit gallery, with new exhibits every 2 to 3 months. Our temporary exhibits explore general topics in U.S. history, as well as railroad history.

¡Pleibol! In the Barrios and the Big Leagues / En los barrios y las grandes ligas
presents the experiences of Latinas/os whose love for the game and incredible talent changed baseball and transformed American culture. Throughout the last century, in the barrios and the big leagues, in rural backyards, and on barn-storming travel teams, these trailblazers used baseball to chase their dreams, challenge prejudice, and build communities. The exhibition is organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service in collaboration with the National Museum of American History. This exhibition received generous support from the Cordoba Corporation and Linda Alvarado, and federal support from the Latino Initiatives Pool, administered by the Smithsonian Latino Center.

La historia y la cultura de las latinas/os y su impacto en la cultura y la sociedad estadounidenses, a través del lente del béisbol, se mostrarán en la nueva exposición bilingüe (español e inglés) del Servicio de Exposiciones Itinerantes de la Institución Smithsonian (SITES, por sus siglas en inglés),  ¡Pleibol! In the Barrios and the Big Leagues / En los barrios y las grandes ligas”. La exposición se podrá ver en Temple Railroad & Heritage Museum 9 de  julio – 9 de octubre. 

¡Pleibol! In the Barrios and the Big Leagues / En los barrios y las grandes ligas  fue organizada por el Museo Nacional de Historia Americana en colaboración con el Servicio de Exposiciones Itinerantes de la Institución Smithsonian. Recibió el generoso apoyo de Cordoba Corporation y Linda Alvarado, y apoyo federal del Fondo de Iniciativas Latinas, administrado por el Centro Latino del Smithsonian.
