Nice idea, but it looked like closed, no one attraction worked apart from the kiddie railway, all locomotives / trains... everything was closed from the public. All you can do is to watch a few dozens ( really attractive ) locomotives from outside, nothing more....More

You don't have to be a rail buff to enjoy it here, although if you are, it must be heaven. It is huge and you can wander pretty freely or take the model train if it's running. There is plenty to climb on and explore....More

A good collection of Hungarian trains and rolling stock,both Steam, Diesel & Electric, most in good condition, lots to see & do, probably a 1/2 day attraction, especially if you enjoy rail museums.

Even anybody can learn a lot about railways, if you visit this open-air museum. There are a lot of old trains, kids can even conduct a train, tehre are little trains too to ride on - it is fun and good time to spend.
