  • If you´re fond of railways, this is a must see. Both inside and outside. Most imposing russian locomotives and narrow gauge wagons. 
  • A short kövelymatkan päässävanhasta in, interesting for those interested in the technology. Price of only 2.5 euros. The size of the money supply.

  • It's hard to imagine that associates with an exhibition of railway museum frankly pornographic content, and very dirty. But in may 2016 year this exhibition was located right in the Centre of the main hall of the Museum. Unfortunately, this museum attracts children (adults out there doing exactly nothing, except to look at what they have seen at the railway stations in his childhood). Bulk-school trips. The Museum's Administration believes that the photo exhibition is an art to which cannot be approached with censorship. It was very difficult to explain to children what the similar art eyeballing is disrespected.
