An adventure for all ages, and closer than you may think! This museum can offer much more than watching trains. 

Start your museum tour with the ‘Great Discovery’. A mine lift takes you back to the time before the invention of the steam engine. Stop for a moment and admire the first Dutch steam locomotive, "De Arend". Continue your museum visit in ‘Dream Journeys’. In an oriental auditorium, actors play scenes about the well-known Orient Express.

A roller coaster ride along life-size trains and locomotives? ‘Monsters of Steel’ is an exciting attraction.  ‘The Acid Test’ is the latest attraction of the Railway Museum. It tells the whole story of almost two centuries of railways, ending with a spectacular train ride.
