  • What a wonderful collection of Steam Engines. Really enjoyed my time as I volunteer on a heritage railway at home. I recommend anyone that comes to Gdansk to visit those museum
  • Railway musea are scarce in Poland. This museum consist of a great number of old locomotives, but most of them are in a terrible condition. All is displayed very static, no activities whatsoever. If you like old locos a visit can be nice, but your children need more activity so the stay will be short... Nice exhibit: former Berlin S bahn trainset which has served in the Trimiasto area for decades
  • Ok. But lack of translation.
  • Better avoid this place
  • Top👍
