National Rail Museum, Delhi Reviews

  • Is quite a nice place to visit. Has varied options to explore n know and understand railways better in a fun manner. Joy train which is bigger one and toy train which is smaller, rides are fun. I liked the Joy train preferably. Quiz are also displayed on few computer consoles that I like so much. Will highly recommend for every age. Nice fun place for kids from even 1.5 years of age.

  • The best place to spend time with family and kids. Many British era steam engines and relics are here. Miniature rail road is kept as well. Many rare photographs of nostalgic moments are present. A must visit place and enjoy the joy ride in the toy train. There is a cafeteria present inside and the restrooms are maintained too good. The museum closes by 5 PM.

  • Very nice place to visit with kids. Kids will have a blast here. Toy train is one of attraction for kids. It has a small play area for kids and if you love photography than this place will be suitable. The museum is well maintained and informative. But still I think the world largest railways should have a world's best museum
