This is a well thought out museum, interesting for all ages and really well interpreted. It should not be missed if you want to get a true feel of the history of coal and its importance in Spain and in Asturias

Outstanding location, good-sized and many activities to see and do. You can even ride old locomotives! Plus you can look at the history of trains in Asturias and Spain. If you love trains, then this is a great place to go visit!

A solid approach to a bit of the technical and social history of trains in a peripheral region and their influence in general wellbeing. A must visit in Gijon, with a careful communication design by Enric Franch, best museum designer in Spain.

Spent an interesting hour and a half in the museum. We were given a brochure in English, but it was a shame that the information on the exhibitions were not in other languages. It was great to see some of the old engines and exhibits....More

A small entrance fee gets you into this large display of mostly Spanish trains and railway equipment. The history is interesting the staff are enthusiastic and you even get a short ride in a train carriage.

check the timetables but if you like trains you're in the right place. You're to be shown trains and trams from past to present time

If you have few hours to kill, and if you have kids, this is an okay place to visit and it is free on a Sunday. It would be nice if they provide information in English or add it on the description of the displayed...More
