You don't have to be a rail buff to enjoy it here, although if you are, it must be heaven. It is huge and you can wander pretty freely or take the model train if it's running. There is plenty to climb on and explore. Great on a sunny day. Most of the information is only in Hungarian. If you... More

In a quiet semi-residential part of Budapest we found this excellent open-air museum. My kids (3 and 8) loved it - friendly staff and loads of things to see and touch and try out. Im not much of a train geek myself but still found it very interesting to stroll around the train yard and see the historical locomotives and... More

A good collection of Hungarian trains and rolling stock,both Steam, Diesel & Electric, most in good condition, lots to see & do, probably a 1/2 day attraction, especially if you enjoy rail museums.

Even anybody can learn a lot about railways, if you visit this open-air museum. There are a lot of old trains, kids can even conduct a train, tehre are little trains too to ride on - it is fun and good time to spend.

Great to see decommissioned, communist era and older steam locomotives and carriages, all preserved with a great deal of care and attention. Climb on board and transport yourself back to a simpler time. Really enjoyed this unexpected museum just outside Budapest.

It's a large museum and on my visit the main shed was given over to a model railway show. A lot of steam locos but little post steam (I suspect it's still running). The displays are good but I could not find a gift shop or guidebook and little accommodation for foreigners in the explanations. Nothing by way of graphic... More

As I am a European Steam Locomotives fan, I highly recommended this outdoor museum for you. Most Locomotives Museums are indoor, but this one locates inside a park. Most Locomotives are preserved in good conditions. There are 2 Turn-tables and one of them will operate every hour. You can enter the Table-table to enjoy its motion. My family feels relax... More

Personally I am not that interested in trains but this museum park is something else. We took a while to get out there on various public transports but it was worth it. So many old locos, a 'garden train' ride which compares favourably with one we have near Bristol and Bath (Avon Valley Country Park) - it's very long and... More

Well, this was the first time when I've actually visited railway museum ever. Before I didn't appreciate how big the steam locomotives are but there we were able to enter almost every one of them. We've spent nearly 2 hours in this museum and for someone like me it was amazing experience. While we were on site, there was maybe... More
