About Us

Escape the day-to-day and join National Railway Museum for a journey through time. Get up close to icons of the rails including Mallard, the world’s fastest steam locomotive. Discover how high-speed rail travel began and journey back in time to experience the working life of a station. Explore over 200 years of history and find out how railways shaped our world.

Admire the splendour of royal travel with the world’s finest collection of royal carriages, before digging deeper into the museum’s historic site in the new audio trail Sound Tracks.

Hop aboard the miniature railway for a little taste of train travel before tucking into a tasty lunch at one of two on-site cafes.

To keep your visit safe and enjoyable, the museum have introduced some temporary changes to their site. You will need to book a free, timed admission ticket before you arrive in order to secure entry. Further guidance can be found on their website.
