Railway Museum, Warsaw
(4.4/5 based on 35+ 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.

  • Warszawa Ochota train station away, for about 5 minutes. Impressed many locomotive series as well as steam locomotives, trains, diesel-powered vehicles such as the small and railway gun of the Germany army's largest exhibits here. The thickness of the armour, and were traveling on the heavy stuff is amazing. Exhibition room also there and a model, but is still attractive vehicle.

  • This museum is rare both in numbers of locomotives, cars, equipment rail. 3 domestic showrooms contain precision models, of accessories of the Polish railways of all times. The description is often bilingual: Polish and English. Outside the real material awaits the visitor. The very accurate description is mostly in Polish and in English for the most remarkable pieces. Their State of preservation is quite remarkable given the storage in outside of a very large number of material (more than 50). Can't compare it to other places where the low number of rooms allows inside storage. For a dozen PLN (less than 4 euros) a visit not to be missed. Thanks to Michal and his colleagues for this wonderful time spent visiting. I highly recommend!
