“railway buffs will love it, others less so.”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

If you're a railway buff you'll love seeing the old steam engines but otherwise not much here apart from the Maharani's carriage showing her different compartments.

“Small museum for railway enthusiasts”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

We went there as we had some spare time. Museum was just about to close so we were let in for a quick visit without a charge (thanks guys!).

Few old locomotives, maharani saloon, some attractions for kids. Bit of history in one of the pavillions. But probably good for railway fans or in spare time.

“for the rail fan”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

this is a small museum that showcase various train engines and a bit of history..

it best to come here either with small kids under 10 years or with the mental viewpoint of a 10 years old. you can climb up into the engine rooms and pretend to drive a train (#guilty) or simply ride on the kiddy train... (i rode 3 times)

there is a room dedicated to the history of trains as well, but like the entire place it's small and limited. bathroom were very bad. but the staffs were helpful and friendly.

entire vist should not take longer than 1 hour max and it's good place to come when you have an hour to fill in between itinerary

“a bygone era!”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

if kids are to be interested, it has to be interactive! a bit dusty & neglected look inside the museum! the train bogey travelled by the queen is mesmerising!

“Good if you have kids along...”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

Its a small attraction and will not take more than 30 mins to cover the entire place. Our 2.5yr old kiddo enjoyed the toy train ride and different types of trains/ levers on display.
