Experience the history of Denmark’s railways in the authentic roundhouse from 1954. We have 21 tracks featuring iconic engines and carriages. Look inside the royal carriages, experience travelling first class and see Denmark’s oldest preserved steam engine from 1868. You can enter many of the museum’s engines and carriages. You can sit on the old wooden seats or stand in the driver’s cab of a steam locomotive. We provide a rewarding outing for the whole family, and visitors of all ages are welcome. Visit the child-sized Children’s Railway Station, brimming with trains and rails for you to play with. Go for a ride on the popular mini-train which runs every day. It is possible to enter many of the carriages and engines. All activities are free once you have paid the entrance fee.

This is a well set out museum with a very professional approach to all displays. English language explanatory signs and descriptions make for a full understanding of the Danish train history. There are many things to amuse and educate youngsters. Highly recommended.

We visited as a family with a child and we all enjoyed it. Extensive exhibits of old trains and structures tell the story of the Danish railway industry through the years.
