Marvel at beautiful paintings of the countryside as viewed from the train, abstract and cubist interpretations of windowside panoramas, and a variety of sketches and impressions of iconic locomotives. Besides providing hours of fun (especially for kids), your visit can be very educative: you can really delve into the history of the railways. Find out how they were built, how signals and telecommunications work, how timetables are designed, how station buildings were designed, or how railway furniture changed over time.
