  • Very nice place to enjoy with kids; we have enjoyed the toy train ride also.we have visited this museum more than 2 times, still we want to go there. Park also available for kids play. Lot of old steam engines available. Selfie lovers love this place to take photos.
  • Excellent place to visit. Nice arrangement and courteous staff. Keep doing good service ICF. Kudos to everyone associated with Chennai Rail Museum. A must see place in Chennai.
  • Good place for train lovers. Children will.love this place. You get nostalgic feeling seeing old train models and gallery. It's a one time visit place. Not crowded at all. You can easily spend 2 to 3hrs here. Children enjoy the toy train which takes people for 2 rounds. Charges are very nominal. For adults it's Rs40/- and for kids just Rs25/-. With that amount you can see all things here. There's a canteen, which provides good food to eat. Overall nice place in Chennai
  • Nice place to learn about the Train and the couch building which is happening in Singara Chennai. They are maintaining it quite nice. More about the Rail will be more informative.
