Say goodbye to 2020 and welcome in the new year with National Railway Museum this season. Take time out to learn something new, admire engineering triumphs, and most importantly – have some festive fun! We’re open every day of the festive period except 24, 25 and 26 December.
Our Pop-up Science shows will reveal a world of wonder on weekdays, exploring the awesome energy of Brussels sprouts and other Christmas magic. Bring the fun home with you when you pick up a free DIY light-up Christmas card pack on selected dates while stocks last.
Shake off the cobwebs with a ride on our Miniature Railway, guaranteed to bring cheer to children and grown-ups alike. Warm up with a hot drink and indulgent festive treat in our café, before continuing your adventure through time. You will meet Rocket, the locomotive that sparked the beginning of the railway age; Queen Victoria’s opulent ‘Palace on Wheels’ in our stunning collection of royal carriages; and Mallard, the world’s fastest steam locomotive.
We will be offering you a very warm welcome as always, with some new measures in place to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable day out. Please see our website for further information.
