The museum is a sort of graveyard of ancient trains, railway equipment, photos and models in a former railway station. It is e5 entry and is only open Wed, Sat, Sun from 9-1. If you are a train enthusiast it may be worth it - if not, not so much.

It has a rusty outside enough for a romantic nostalgia and splendor inside. Carefully collected with love old railway items and exceptional small train landscapes. Our kids enjoyed it so did we. The outside part with real trains is a little bit underdeveloped as you cannot step on the trains or carrige rails, which would be a cool addition. But... More

Come back to early the 20th century in this amazing old station. It was the second rail station in Trieste, built in 1906 to better connect Trieste with Yugoslavia and from there to Wien. An amazing place smelling of Trieste Middle Europe character.

We just loved this place. Situated in an old Trieste railway station near the port area, its entrance was a little tricky to find, down a side street next to an English pub of all places. It's only open at selected times, so do check these out. But if you get an opportunity, I would recommend going. Five euros (£3.5)... More

This museum is located right into the old railway station of Triest building and is full of cool stuff like uniforms, medals, maps, telegraphs, scale models of trains with their own path and train motors, parts and commands. Quite an interesting visit if you like trains and are fascinated by them.

Unfortunately it's only open on certain days, but is well worth a visit. The indoor exhibits are very well displayed in a logical, interesting a clean way. There is something interesting to see at every turn and the building itself somehow retains the atmosphere of a station as many of the fixtures and fittings are original. Outside there's a modest...

the old railway station of Trieste, which hosts the museum, is a very beautiful building. Inside it, in the museum, you can not only see a lot of train models and dioramas, but it is still possible to see how was a railway station 100 years ago. There are still signboard posters written in german, as at that time Trieste... More

Beautiful old building repurposed as museum, nostalgic atmosphere, lots of cool stuff from telegraph gear to model layouts to old locomotives. The railways played such a role in the city's and the region's history though the Hapsburg era and two world wars, and this goes some way to recapturing it -- though the signage (all in Italian, with only a...
