  • 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.
  • 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)
  • Best place to see all historical of indonesian railway. You will get more information about it in here. If you want to riding the train tours, you must come here in the weekend. Because the schedule only available for weekend.
  • Very well maintained. You can ride on the vintage train but make sure you come early (8 am). Train ride only operates on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.
  • Good arrangement of historical trains & locomotive. During holiday, we must come early to buy the train ticket
