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. TEMPORARY EXHIBITS: 
Elliott Erwitt: Dog Dogs
Jan 23 – March 16

This exhibition leaves little question about Erwitt's love of man's best friend. For the photographer, it is the photograph that counts, above and beyond its subject. If Erwitt proves anything, however, it is that our close relationship with these furry fellow travelers is due to mutual resemblance and emotion. Erwitt sees the dignity of the ankle-high Chihuahua; the anxiety of the homeless hound; the smugness of the adored dachshund, sitting on its chaise longue in the noonday sun; the patience of the pom-pommed poodle; and the oafish joy of a homely but well-loved pug. Elliott Erwitt: Dog Dogs photo exhibit will be on display at The Temple Railroad & Heritage Museum from January 23 to March 16.
