Owner description: For a fantastic day out for the whole family in York, visit the award winning National Railway Museum. Get up close to over 300 years of fascinating history in York's only National Museum. Explore our giant halls full of trains and railway legends including the majestic Duchess of Hamilton, step on to the futuristic Japanese Bullet Train or marvel at the stunning opulence of the Royal Trains. Get on board awe-inspiring locomotives, watch our engineers at work in the Workshop, uncover hidden treasures in the Warehouse and make tracks to the outdoor area. The children can let off steam in our outdoor play area, and our miniature railway ride is perfect for the whole family. Every weekend and throughout the school holidays, the kids can enjoy a lively programme of events, including science shows, story telling, steam rides, craft activities and special events. Please note that calls to our listed phone number (0844...) cost 4.25p per minute plus your phone company's access charge.

not to be missed if you are a train enthusiast. Run by very knowleagable volunteers. No entry charge, which is quite unique!

Beautifully restored old trains. Loved the royal ones. Enormous and most impressive buildings and lots of trains to look at. Also two cafes, book shop, and no charge but you make a donation.

Fantastic railway museum for all the family. Even your not particularly interested in trains the scale of the museum and its exhibits is fascinating. All the children there seemed to be having a great time and are well catered for. A small train ( road) runs from the minister and back to the museum which is good fun as the walk from the centre of York to the museum is not very scenic and quite a way for young children
