  • A really good museum with a lot of different train from different time periods. Really fun to ride a railcar to Gävle and look at more different train there. Lots of fun stuff to look at. Certainly worth a visit.

  • Swedish railway museum, Gävle 96. The last open day in three years. Saturday 9 september 2017. Open House and free admission. The Museum closes for extensive renovation. It was a hive of activity in all areas of the Museum that day. A great museum for our railway history. Glad that it came so many visitors. Already an hour before the opening, it was queued up at the gate. The newest in the train met the oldest. Excited to see what they want to see after the renovation in three years. But three years, it feels like a long time to have the Museum closed for so long.

  • Järnvägsmuséet has focused on showing the development of Sweden's railways from the beginning. There are very old steam locomotives and old passenger carriages to watch in the various halls. It might have been fun with some carriages and trains from the later year (read eldrvina) to see the big difference between years. The last room is a bit confusing with balloons, legobyggen and interiors from the old County home, etc. Now close the Museum for renovation for some time, maybe it will be more modern locomotives and rolling stock in the new exhibition.

  • Impressive place. Really big with several real trains 🚊 Great place to stay if you are out on the roads and need a break for the kids. They loved running around looking at the museum or playing in the play room. There's a big outside department that seemed fun with a mini train that the kids can ride with. In winter, however, that part of the museum is closed. The cafeteria was the only bad thing. Really dull. Food in plastic.
  • Nice place to visit. Good old trains. Old train transport between Gävle central station and the museum. Tip: visit also the Railway Museum in York (UK), Railway Museum in Utrecht in The Netherlands and the Railway Museum in Nuremberg Germany.
  • A great place to explore and experience swedish railway history. It has signs in both English and swedish language. Offers a lot of information and in the ticket there is also included a ride with a small bustrain to the center of the town or to the storage of some other trains across the town.
  • Nice , friendly museum, especially nice for families with kids, you can get into a lot of trains etc.
  • A really great museum. Good for little kids too!
