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.

The Railway Museum, Mysore Reviews

  • Visited this place with my 5 year old that loves trains and he was ecstatic to get inside the various locomotives and play the role of the Engineer. There seems to be some construction/maintenance activity in progress. I am hoping that once it is completed this will be much better place to visit. Currently the toy train ride is not operational. Once that is resumed it will be worth the trip from a kid's view point. If you have been to the Rail Museum in Delhi, this might not live up to the mark unless you are a train/locomotive enthusiast.

  • Good but It needs a bit maintenance. Work was underway on informative boards. Perhaps then it will be better. All n all a decent place for an hr or so to visit.. A treat was to see the 100+yr old maharajas private coaches n dining hall n servant quarters... All well maintained. Be careful you may miss it.

  • Not many people suggest this when you visit Mysuru but this is a nice place to visit if you have time. There a plenty of train engines & bogeys placed for you to have a look, you can went see the interiors of a few (they are not in the most pristine condition), they is a steam locomotive placed at the far end (yes it has the coal compartment). There is a toy train ride available for kids and a toy platform also so that kids will also enjoy this place. There is a train tucked away in the shed which is quite a nice place with antique phones and model bridges kept. Do visit if you have time.

  • This place is a must visit if you are in Mysore. The children will love the museum with lots of rail engines and wagons. The engines were well painted and maintained in a decent condition. There was a small children's park inside which was not at all maintained. The entry tickets to the museum is only 20 rupees per adult. There was also a small photo gallery which showed the development of the railways. They entire visit to this museum will take only about 45 minutes. The museum is located very near Mysore railway station. This place is guaranteed to be a hit of with the children. A must visit place

  • Absolutely brilliant. Very well maintained and the way it has been showcased is really good. Kids and people with railway background (Family worked in Railways) will enjoy them and they will also feel nostalgic.
