Escape the day-to-day at National Railway Museum, reopening 19 May. Hop aboard the miniature railway for a little taste of train travel and unleash your curiosity on during school holidays with the return of family-friendly activities. Indoor and outdoor play areas should keep children of all ages busy, while you recharge with a warm drink and some cake from one of the onsite cafés.
Discover the world-changing stories of the railway through star objects like Stephenson’s Rocket and the world’s fastest steam locomotive, Mallard. Admire the splendour of royal travel including Queen Victoria’s ‘palace on wheels’, and marvel at the power and innovation of the Japanese Bullet Train.
National Railway Museum is open 10.00-17.00, Wednesday – Sunday during term time and every day during selected holiday dates (including Monday 31 May and Tuesday 1 June).
The museum is free to enter but booking ahead online is encouraged and can even be done on the day (capacity allowing). There may be a few additional safety measures in place since your last visit, so check the National Railway Museum website before your visit.
