Jelgavas ekspozīcijas pirmsākums ir 1982. gada 24. decembris, kad Jelgavas dzelzceļnieku kluba telpās atklāja Jelgavas dzelzceļa nodaļas kaujas un darba slavas sabiedrisko muzeju. 1991. gadā Dzelzceļa muzejs ieguva 1903. gadā celto dzelzceļnieku dzīvojamo māju pie dzelzceļa stacijas.

Šobrīd muzeja dārzā apskatāma ekspozīcija, kurā izvietots semafors, sakabes, drezīnas, lokomotīvju riteņpāri, ūdens kolonna, pārbrauktuves barjera, guļbūvē celta pārmijnieka mājiņa.

Muzeja telpās izvietota ekspozīcija par Jelgavas dzelzceļa mezgla vēsturi un apskatāmas bijušo dzelzceļnieku personīgās relikvijas, fotogrāfijas un priekšmeti par šaursliežu dzelzceļiem Kurzemē, staciju soli un perona zvans, biļešu skapīši, sakaru un signālierīču kolekcija, ceļu strādnieku instrumenti un ceļu būves materiāli, stacijas priekšnieka formas mētelis, ugunsdzēsēju darbarīki, tvaika lokomotīves detaļas un apkopes darbarīki.

Dzelzceļu personāls allaž ir bijis ne tikai apzinīgs sava darba veicējs, bet arī aktīvs sabiedriskās dzīves dalībnieks.
