    You have to buy tickets to visit this museum. Ample parking space. If you are interested in history of rail, then surely come. Apart from outdoor there is an inside gallery that describes many knowledgeable things through the models. Children​ should be brought here in this museum. Eatery is available inside the museum. A musical fountain and a souvenir shop is also there to attract people. You can also enjoy the toy train ride .Some people climb up the train's roof, they should be fined. Do not visit this place during hot summer days.

    A great display of trains of the past. This place doesn't fail to throw me back to the past when I visit. On display are a wide variety of real life sized trains that were used earlier for transportation. There is also an indoor museum which shows scaled down models of trains and their inner workings. It is a very educational place and I highly recommend it for school and family trips. You are not allowed to have picnics as such over there. There is even a toy train ride which youngsters will definitely enjoy

    It is a good place for family outings. The museum contains models of almost all the train engines ever built, the museum also has bigger models of many trains, all over it is a good place to visit. Local Facts you should know: 1. It has few special rides apart from the big museum like train rides, toy train, steam rides etc. 2. It has a well furnished and maintained food court, which is quite pricey. 3. The local staffs are good and will help you visiting the area.

    One section wasn't open to public yet. But toy train ride was cute n restaurant isn't very expensive but ambience is very nice. Costs rs 150 per person for both museum n train ride. Models at display are quite interesting. Nearby Bhutanese Royal Embassy. Snacks n ice creams are available. Cooperative staff.
