  • The Railway Museum was for myself and also for children. Some interesting locomotives and the Emperor's carriages. In particular, if you are interested in history and trains exhibit is great. Personally, I was in London on a day when there was a steam locomotive with David, and a picnic, as well as pakarin room cake buffet. The children had a different program as well as a park train, which picked up on the head, when the weather permits. You should look at the Finnish railway museum events. Bigger tapahtauma 13.9.2017. I recommend kaiille
