  • Honestly I came with no expectation and little bit skeptical, but I was so wrong. It was clean, neat, and the locomotives and railway cars were well taken care of. And they even have a railway car turned into a library which I think was very cool. A very fun and educational place to visit.
  • Very interesting place, you can see all collection trains with history in it. You can ride steam train that still operated until now and take some great picture. Keep it CLEAN if you want to go there.
  • I have a good memory when my grandfather took me and my little brother visit this museum. In the past days, this museum just contain old locomotives with a very exclusive luxurious steam train ride. Nowadays this museum have a new concept of showing it's collection, it is a great one. There's a train ride tour (with a diesel locomotive) brought us across a very beautiful lakeside view, but still the steam train rides tour are highly not available for individual tourists, you gotta reserve the steam train tour long before your visit,and it comes with insane (for indonesian standard) amount of money (approximately $1,354.00)
  • A historical place for antique locomotives from Indonesia year 1800- 1990s. A good place if you like train transportation moda. It bring back old memories alive.
  • The place is better than before. There are more things to see such as old locomotives, train memorabilia and brief history about train in Indonesia. You can enjoy the memories of railways in colonial era on a steam powered locomotive. The train will travel from Ambarawa to Kedung Jati and back to Ambarawa station which is available in weekends and public holidays.
