The shop is a little small but well stocked with friendly and knowledgeable staff. The museum is very interesting and worth the entrance fee. Something for everyone
This museum may be small but it is a really beautiful little museum and shop - well worth a visit if you have an interest in trains. Our visit was a bit rushed as we visited near closing time - wish we'd had more time...
We stopped here for an hour and really enjoyed ourselves. Its a quaint little museum with lots of railway memorabilia. The miniature railway offers good value and the ride lasts around 10 minutes. Well worth a visit
The Railway Museum, and model shop, in Betws-y-Coed, are most easily accessed from the Station Platform, over the old footbridge.

The Conwy Valley Railway Museum & Model Shop is OK. My 5 year old and 2.5 year old boys enjoyed it.

Next to the miniature train is a converted old style train carriage that has turned cafe. Would go again and definitely worth popping to see if... More
Purposely went to Betws y Coed to visit the Museum, but was frankly disappointed. To call it a railway museum is a bit of a misnomer; it is more a railway MODEL museum. Some quite nice models but too many of them you have to pay to get them working, and even the ones that were free didn't always work.... More
Lovely enthusiastic friendly staff and a very interesting museum. They also had a miniature railway for the children. Well worth a visit if you are a railway enthusiast like my hubby .
