Descend 250 meters in an elevator and climb out in the early 19th-century at the Railway Museum Utrecht. Explore a collection of locomotives, carriages, steam engines and even train sets, learn about the Netherlands' train history and little ones can play on the interactive exhibits! Calling all trainspotters!

The Railway Museum Utrecht is dedicated to living the life locomotive in the late 18th and early 19th-century! It's a fully interactive adventure for trainspotters young and old.

Step into the carriage once used by the royal family. Ride 'Fire Test', a virtual journey through two whole centuries of track history!

Take the 'pendeltrain' from Utrecht Centraal to the Spoorwegmuseum (and back again at the end of your visit). Your transit pass or (OV chipcard) will work just fine!

Very nice museum, especially for the children. Do note that you can visit part of the museum without buying a ticket too. A whole bunch of old trains can be viewed without entering the paid part...
