  • The Museum is really nicely done. There are historic railways and abundant many model. The model railway exhibition is beautiful. Good price performance ratio.

  • Spent a couple of hours in this museum, has a great variety of different trains to view. Note that not all of the exhibits are available in alternate languages other than German.  more »
  • Very large and spread over three floors of the history of rail transport. Definitely an experience for father and son, and every friend of the railway. Even in bad weather
