An well laid out museum of local railways with a superb model railway. Interesting artefacts and full size exhibits, some of which are able to be entered. Within easy reach of Lecce railway station.

Something different to see. Run by volunteers with some model railways, old poster memorabilia and lots of rollling stock. Very interesting to see what train travel might have been like 60 to 80 years ago.

Museo Ferroviario della Puglia (Apulia Railway Museum). The building is located right across from Lecce’s train station (as the crow flies), but you can’t get there directly. So we walked from the station and turned right onto Viale Gallipoli, continued until we saw a brown...More

English booklet available. Easy to navigate and a fascinating way to spend a couple of hours. Would be better if you could access it through Lecce station but nevertheless it was well signed. Staff helpful and polite. Inexpensive but worth the detour
