  • An interesting Museum. Various showrooms including external site with cars and locomotives from various periods. It takes time and patience to go through all the pages and views, or trailer.

  • Fascinating museum about the history of trains in Israel. Good for kids. My favorite is the elegant railroad car where heads of state traveled. There's also the concrete fortified and armed car used by the British during the Arab revolt of 1936 to 1939. And there's a nice short movie shown in an old passenger coach.
  • A small museum presenting a few artifacts including a 100 years old ottoman locomotive. Kids enjoyed it...
  • A great place for adults as well as kids. Access problematical
  • Modest museum documenting the history of trains in Israel. Best part is that you can handle the actual historical equipment.
  • Great place to spend time with kids and learn some history about Israel railway
