Toijala Railway Museum is a gem
Aug 2018 • Solo
For railway enthusiasts the Railway Museum at Akaa-Toijala (located south of Tampere on the E12 Tampere-Helsinki motorway) is a gem. It dates from 1876 as the junction and depot for the Hämeenlinna-Turku-Tampere rail route. It is activity maintained by railway enthusiasts.

The museum features an exterior turntable for the manoeuvre of locomotives into and out of a semi-circular engine shed. The shed houses steam engines, carriages, railway maintenance vehicles and other railway memorabilia.

It's ideal way to learn about the history of the Finnish State Railways and will also appeal to children. Some of the exhibits have detailed information in English too.

Railway romantic
May 2013 • Couples
It was not very great place to visit, mainly because it is so modest. Stil you can feel and imagine that romantic wich belongs to rairoad. Easy to cath by train from Tampere only 20 away.
