The Old Colony & Fall River Railroad Museum is a small railroad museum located in Fall River Massachusetts. The Old Colony and Fall River Railroad operated from 1854 to 1863, and later as part of the extensive Old Colony Railroad system.[1] The museum is located directly across from the former Fall River Line Terminal, part of the Old Colony's "boat train" service between Boston and New York City.

The museum has a small collection of railroad equipment including a former Pennsylvania Railroad P-70B, a New Haven RDC, a former New York Central Caboose, and a New Haven Boxcar. location near Battleship Cove in Fall River, Massachusetts.
