  • I felt a bit underwhelmed going around here. I've been to KWVR several times and decided that as my nephew (3) was mad about trains he might enjoy the two museums. They're fairly tiny and there wasn't much to do for younger kids, which is a shame as the content could be presented in a different way and be more appealing. If you're an adult, I think you get a lot more out of both. If you're a steam fan, then the carriages museum has a huge archive of steam magazines you can buy.
  • Cute little museum. Takes up to an hour to see everything. Loads of historic railway signs etc. Great for film buffs to as there are several carriages used in period films/ tv series.
  • Superb Museum, Worth looking, If you want old and modern railway magazines then this is a place to go over 13,000 mags in stock.
  • Wet day at KWVR made a great day thanks to this museum plus Flying Scotsman!! This is a fascinating place with every inch of walls covered in signage etc. making it superb social history. The carriages themselves are beautiful and worth studying.
  • A very interesting rail carriage restoration and museum.
