About National Railway Museum - York

Dedicated to celebrating the enormous influence the railways have had on modern British history, the National Railway Museum in York is a fantastic attraction for those interested in the history of the locomotive, engineering or national transport networks.


The museum itself is filled to the brim with fascinating displays, iconic trains and also contains an outside play area. Over the years, the exhibitions have become far more interactive and families will find plenty to occupy children of all ages. If you are  considering a visit, it is worth visiting the NRM website, where they have details of special exhibitions and displays, which in the past have included after dark viewings and educational workshops.
