In 2039 Italy’s railway heritage will be two centuries old. This museum is a walkthrough of how far it has come. It’s a huge space, with multiple themed pavilions in an old 1840 Bourbon workshop. You’ll find locomotives (steam and electric and diesel), furnaces, carriages, and train models. The museum is an unqualified hit with adults and kids alike. This is the world’s largest number of historical trains. Highlights are the Bayard locomotive, the Vesuvius locomotive, and an exhibit on the technical evolution of steam power.

Superb railway museum, very interesting FS stock and lovely location.
Ever since, as a child, you were playing with trains, you had longed for a train.. Under a pavilion of a former iron foundry come on board the railway of history. After that don't forget to take a walk around the outside gardens and have a glance over the Golfo di Napoli right from the middle of it. Stop in "Pietrarsa S.Giorgio a Cremano" station (from underground station Napoli Piazza Garibadi platform Metro linea 2 destination Salerno - Torre Annunziata - Castellammare)
Very nice museum in a marvellous surrounding, along the sea. You can reach it easily by train since it it just beside Pietrarsa-San Giorgio a Cremano station. You can see many examples of old train and locomotives. The garden in the middle is well finished. There is a bar area inside. I suggest to visit it in the sunset.
Fabulous well kept collection of trains and train machinery. Very friendly and helpful staff and very interesting virtual show.
very nice place. A lot of locomotives and coaches from the past
