Railway Museum, Warsaw

(4.4/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
The Railway Museum in Warsaw is located in the former Warsaw Główna PKP railway terminus and is very near to the Warszawa Ochota railway station. The museum's exhibits are divided into permanent and temporary collections — the latter being displayed inside the museum's galleries. The permanent collection consists of historic rolling stock that is displayed on the tracks outside, including one of the few remaining armoured railway trains in Europe. The museum also contains a library which houses many books on the subject of Polish railways.During the interwar period the museum's headquarters were located at 1 Nowy Zjazd Street .On 30 July 2009, PKP S.A. the Polish state railway company served notice to quit on the Museum authorities requiring them to vacate their current location by 31 August 2009. However, as of September 2014, the museum remains in place and open to the public.

  • Apparently, the Museum is in liquidation and this is a great pity. One of the most underrated an unadvertised. This gem in the current era, when all they build fast rail and Poland has a history of railways which could envy not one country. Celebrity Torpedo to Zakopane, armored train, etc. Amazing huge big locomotives, an amazing place which should be moved to a different location if here "bother".
