This museum can offer you a lot more then only a big collection of trains. This is an experience! It was established in 1927; since 1954 it has been housed in the “Maliebaan station”, a former station in Utrecht.
When in the museum, you can start off with ‘The Great Discovery’. Here you can visit an English miners’ village from the year 1839. In this part of the museum you can also see the first Dutch steam locomotive: ‘De Arend’. You can continue your visit to the museum in ‘Dream Journeys’. In a Far East style theatre you can listen to Orient Express travellers telling about their experiences.
A rollercoaster ride in which you pass enormous trains and locomotives? ‘Steel Monsters’ is thrilling and exciting. The latest attraction in The Dutch Railway Museum is ‘The Fire Test’. In this ride you can experience the full story behind almost two centuries of railways, ending in a spectacular train ride.
