  • Excellent, helpful staff, various opportunities to have fun, from 3 to 103 yo. Turntable, garden railway, models with running trains and outstanding detail, etc. Cool, fun for a morning/afternoon, or if you are really into railways, a whole day. Nice restaurant and buffet, too.
  • Really nice railway museum. I was there with a train lover and he loved it! It is obviously nice taken care of. It is a good place for kids too.
  • Great experience! Kids and adults loved it too 🙂 Trully entertaining! Don't miss out on the miniature train ride!!! 😉
  • Had a lot of fun walking around and seeing some of the vintage railway cars and locomotives. Would have liked to know more about what we were seeing however aside from the title, everything was only in Hungarian. Definitely not a place that caters to foreign tourists but a cool place to wander for a couple hours nonetheless.
  • Great collection at this museum! Well worth a visit! Looks like it'd be great for children with the miniature railway and other attractions. Could use a little more English, and other language, information around but it's easy to understand the information signs next to each exhibit. Be sure to go by Tram 14 from the city and a short walk from there.
