  • We were in the August 2017, with our two sons (4 and 6 years old) in the Museum. The Museum is spread over several buildings and a large open area/City Park. You can see lots of Dampflocks and old rail cars. Outdoors, you can ride even with an old steam and visit historic station building. All in all a successful visit and a clear recommendation on our part.
