  • In the old North Station, where trains arrived from the plateau today package there is a beautiful Museum containing steam engines reals, models, a wagon of the old tram of Gijón, and lots of information about the history of the railway. There are days that put in operation a train of steam and are can upload them children during some meters. The elderly also enjoy for its content.

  • A very special Museum. If you like trains are going to enjoy a lot, parts there are incredible, locomotives, cars, traffic lights, needles, and all kinds of useful railway. On some trains and wagons you can enter and if you are lucky enough to go in the days of steam they give you a "trip"... just amazing steam train. Highly recommended with kids and free with the citizen card. It is worth to see it.

  • I will not comment on the behavior of some of the staff members as I am determined to think of this place as of the most interesting and unique place I have ever visited. It is well maintained, ideas are well presented. You cannot help recommending it afterwards.
  • Locomotives and the documents related to history of Spanish railway.
  • Avoid. Not worth the entrance fee.
  • Impressive machines, such dragons of iron, casting smoke and steam, roamed the geography of our land. This museum not only offers a journey through the history of the railway is also a journey through our social history, for example 85% of the population Spanish until the MID-TWENTIETH century, traveling in 3rd class. It is also the opportunity to see some of the first telegraphs, telephones that we had in Spain. For the fans of railway machines, each one has its technical data sheet. A museum that lends itself to be visited in different ways: a stroll by this very pleasant to visit space and looking at some of the machines or with more time and interest reading the information made available of the public. To take into account the days of steam. Days in which any machine load of coal and water and to operate, equipped with a boxcar that visitors to the Museum can be uploaded to make a trip and return within the grounds of the Museum. Fun for all ages. I would say that a visit essential within the offer "museums" of Gijón.
