The Railway Museum - Review

The collection of vintage trains here is small but charming. Apart from the cars, carriages, engines and locomotives, the Chamunidi gallery here depicts the growth of Inidan Railways through photgraphs and paintings. The museum showcases two royal coaches that the Maharaja of Mysore used. Children will love the battery operated mini train that takes visitors around the exhibits.

  • Poor Maintenance and no staff to guide through the visit. Nobody knows their facts right. Its more like a haunted house than a museum. Though it is located within the city limits, there are no parking facility. All the staffs are very rude and impolite. Staff have no patience in answering simple enquiries. It opens at 10.30 and closes at odd hours even before the visitors leave. Visitors are asked to vacate in a very short period. u can visit this place in 1 hour time. Good for photo shot. Entry fees is 20 rs per head.

  • Nicely maintained for vintage rails. u can visit this place in 1 hour time. Good for photo shot. Entry fees is 20 rs per head. I went there for my pre-wedding photo shoot which is best suited in terms of place and crowd. Even on weekends its not crowded, so we can easily capture photos

  • This rail museum is located in Mysore city, beside the busy Mysore city rail station. The museum must have seen better days before but now in a state of total neglect and wears a sad look. Very few exhibits are on the ground, though a few are priceless pieces!!!! With only an occasional visitor, the place is desolate. The skeletal staff lacked any enthusiasm either in engaging the visitors on in the upkeep of the area. Hope the people at the top take care of this fine piece of rail history in the country.

  • Nice place to spend some time learning about journey of railway. Small area so don't expect too much. Do enjoy the train ride be it alone or with kids.

  • Well-maintained Musuem. Would have been great if there was a man or demo or video to explain the working mechanism of these great engines. There is a toy train round available for all at a nominal price
