  • A good time as this visit with our two daughters. It was the 1st time we were visiting a museum devoted to trains. And my faith, it was very nice to see huge locomotives, trains having the history of rail in Sweden and be able to climb inside. Children will be thrilled with a games area and a replenishment of Lego city at the end of the course. If you switch to Gävle, feel free. We paid 120 Sek 4 because off-season from August 15.

  • A very worth seeing museum that effectively presents the Swedish railway history. Not only by displaying old locomotives, but also a great way to present how the growth of the railways affected society. Don't miss to visit the old station house in the area which has been refurbished to very good condition. There is a restaurant car at the Museum that is used as a café, with what looked like the original décor. The supply and prices of the, however, was not much to cheer for and I hope that cart gets a boost when the Museum will be renovated.

  • Extremely interesting museum with many historical artifacts. The railbus was also a bonus. The children lacked a little newer high-speed train-it would have been fun! A lot of small children.
