Great to see decommissioned, communist era and older steam locomotives and carriages, all preserved with a great deal of care and attention. Climb on board and transport yourself back to a simpler time. Really enjoyed this unexpected museum just outside Budapest.

It's a large museum and on my visit the main shed was given over to a model railway show. A lot of steam locos but little post steam (I suspect it's still running). The displays are good but I could not find a gift shop or guidebook and little accommodation for foreigners in the explanations. Nothing by way of graphic... More

As I am a European Steam Locomotives fan, I highly recommended this outdoor museum for you. Most Locomotives Museums are indoor, but this one locates inside a park. Most Locomotives are preserved in good conditions. There are 2 Turn-tables and one of them will operate every hour. You can enter the Table-table to enjoy its motion. My family feels relax... More

The park is such fun for kids. Yes daddy had a good time too☺ the turning wheels goes round every hour. However the opening hours are a bit tight if you want to go with lil one having a nap in the afternoon The prixing is ambitious. Could have enjoyed a couple of rides and once i managdd t9 close...

Personally I am not that interested in trains but this museum park is something else. We took a while to get out there on various public transports but it was worth it. So many old locos, a 'garden train' ride which compares favourably with one we have near Bristol and Bath (Avon Valley Country Park) - it's very long and... More

Well, this was the first time when I've actually visited railway museum ever. Before I didn't appreciate how big the steam locomotives are but there we were able to enter almost every one of them. We've spent nearly 2 hours in this museum and for someone like me it was amazing experience. While we were on site, there was maybe... More

This museum is super nice. Great for train fans and families with kids.if you want to see all and good we recommend more than 3 h visit. Some of the trains were not open which was a pity for us but the open ones were super and some are running and moved inside the museum's yard. To reach this place... More

We spent a good 3 hours at the Hungarian Railway Museum Park. There were old engines of all sizes and ages, some you were allowed to climb up on and others you weren't. The day we visited there were perhaps only 20 other visitors on site, so we always managed to climb aboard the engines at our leisure and have... More

We took my father-in-law, a train fanatic and he was thrilled. He could recognize all the different types of trains. The place is vast - they are real trains, not miniatures - so take good shoes and be prepared to walk a lot.

This is an excellent place to see old steam and diesel locomotives up close and personal. There are two enormous turntables with engines and carriages all around and you can climb aboard most of them. There isn't the health and safety restrictions in force as in Western Europe so the whole place is fantastic for big and small kids. You... More
