Better to access this museum by car. Hard to get there otherwise. Really interesting spot which incorporates railroad history along with Ottoman and British Mandate history. Signage is very helpful. You can enter many of the retired old carriages.

An excellent find for all ages! The history of the Israeli Railway with cards you can go into; plenty cars also for children to play. We spent over 3 1/2 hours there and we came without our grandchildren.

Very interesting tour with an interesting young guide. We visited a number of trains and received some historical insight into the hostory of the trains that carried the people in the past in Palestine and Israel from 1948.

We visited the museum during Passover holidays, with 4-8 years boys and girls. I was surprised that there were only few visitors, since we (children and adults), enjoyed the visit very much. My only drawback was the complicated drive to the parking lot.
