  • Several dozen steamers and wagons of the narrow-gauge railway "parked" in a small space give a lot of fun for visitors. For most objects you can enter, look different knobs, lewarów, cranes, look into the boiler. Several passenger carriages are equipped with minimuseums, with a small number of photographs and artefacts. There is also a guard booth and a waiting area with old maps and telephone cameras. In the middle of the museum there is a children's playground [of course:)]. Be sure to read the story of the Lord "Grandpa"-touching. It's a pity that his no longer there. The price of tickets to the museum of the narrow gauge railway is also a tour of the ruins of the castle "The Devil of Venice"-they stand just behind the museum fence and make an impression of their massively. Siege machines are set around the ruins. It is a pity that NE could go to the castle yard [because it lasted some renovation], but an additional attraction cool. The cost of admission to the museum is a normal ticket 16 zł, reduced 14 and parking 5 zł. PS. After some exhibits, you can see that it lacks the dofiansowania of this facility, rust, decay. Too bad.

  • In general, our goal was not a museum but located next to the castle ruins. On the spot, it turned out that there is no way to explore the ruins if you do not redeem a ticket for the museum. Normal ticket 14 reduced 12 zł. Museum exhibits can be a great attraction for the youngest. The locomotions are open as well as wagons. Everywhere you go and see. An additional attraction is a narrow-gauge train ride. Unfortunately we were very disappointed in the castle. The ruins can be visited only from the outside. For unknown reasons, the entrance to the ruins was closed.

  • Nice place, Good family day out for railways lovers.
  • Good hostel
  • 10 minutes of attractions. If you love trains, you'll like it. If you are not particularly interested in trains, you will be bored.
  • Not so big but nice, also close to Biskupin
  • Waste of time and money. Rubbish little trains and it is really small and over priced. Don't bother.
