Get up close to over 200 years of fascinating history in York’s only National Museum. Explore our giant halls full of trains and railway legends including Mallard - the world's fastest steam locomotive, the Shinkansen Bullet Train and Royal Trains including Queen Victoria's luxurious saloon.

Soak up the nostalgic atmosphere in our renovated Station Hall which tells the story of over a century of station life. Explore the different passenger journeys and travel back in time to experience working life in a station.

Get on board awe inspiring locomotives, watch our engineers at work in The Workshop, uncover hidden treasures in The Warehouse and make tracks to our outdoor area. Kids can let off steam in our play areas and on our miniature railway ride.
