  • I feel myself so lucky to visit this historic museum and realise the difficulty about the making of himalayan railways in past. Very informative and historical place.
  • Loved this small but historical museum. The colonial heritage is presented and preserved well. A must visit if you like trains.
  • Great museum with so many historic photos and things.
  • A good display of the history of DHR. I really liked it.
  • Great place to see the Steam engine train. Its called toy train. Museum and train station situated in the same place. Barfi movie's shooting location also here. Not too much attractive place. But need to come here only for see the steam engine train.

Where to stay in Darjeeling

A popular hillside resort town with plenty of attractions old, new, natural, and manmade, Darjeeling has a good number of accommodations to cater to the long list of visitors. Hotels and lodges across the main urban area provide the most popular options in town, with some newly built accommodations sitting alongside particularly well-maintained colonial-era properties. Hostels can be found on the side streets in the main urban area, while further out of town sit a number of eco-lodges and old plantation houses, now open as hotels or rental cottages.
