Museum of Steam Locomotives, Sibiu

3.9
#5 of 12 in Museums in Sibiu
The Steam Locomotives Museum is a railway museum in Sibiu, Romania. It houses a collection of steam locomotives and engines.

Inaugurated in 1994, the museum comprises 23 standard gauge locomotives, 10 narrow gauge locomotives, 3 snowploughs and 2 steam cranes. 7 of these locomotives are active, and are used on a variety of special trains for enthusiasts and other groups.

The Locomotives Museum is located opposite the main railway station in Sibiu, comprising the former roundhouse and turntable across the railways lines. Part of the depot area is still used so care should always be taken. In addition, there is usually a narrow gauge steam locomotive based at the depot of the narrow gauge Sibiu-Agnita railway.

The locomotives displayed were built between 1885 and 1959 in Romania and other countries, such as Germany and the United States.

  • Creepy at first glance but very charming place. Hard to get there because even the locals know that there is a Museum of steam locomotives of the early ' 900, just follow the signs to the ' race ', the station. The locomotives are abandoned to themselves, despite the historical significance they have. Is an extremely interesting and fascinating. A happy return but to pay attention to isolated roads leading to the place in question.

  • The Museum is located close to the train station of Sibiu. To get there you have to reach the station, pass the below passage and crossing the tracks on foot. From there you have to go to the right and walk until you find a blue entrance. The Museum is free of charge but is well worth the visit. Settled many steam locomotives and newer. After visiting the main attractions, this museum is worth a visit.

  • Nice to see, but in a horrible state. It's a pity
  • If you like steam engines, it's a good place to go. No information about engines provided but it is free!
  • It's not actually a museum. There are locomotives outside that are left over there. They are all kind of locomotives, but nobody cares about the trains and nobody maintains them.
  • It's not something organized. It's just a train station with a few steam engines exposed. If you are not a fan of them, you can skip this part in your trip.
  • Gread for kids. Needs some maintenance.
