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

Saw a sign for this museum near to the railway station, definitely worth a visit if you like railways or engineering, great models, and full size which you can get onto. Not expensive and worth a visit, check opening times.

This compact museum of (mainly local) railway history is on the other side of the tracks from Lecce's main railway station - so it is some way from Lecce's other attractions and you do need to check the opening times before seeking it out. When...More
