Go if you are a train nut you must go.....

It was interesting, esp. the museum and the long lines of unique and historic cars. The bathrooms were awful. The staff was friendly and helpful.

I went there with my wife and kid. It is a very beautiful place. Very nicely maintained. You ll get to know rail history of India. Kid will enjoy the toy train ride. I would say if you are in delhi, you should visit Rail Museum once.

A great place but a lot is to be desired 1. Utter neglect of exhibits by both authorities and patrons- It is clearly written that people shouldn't climb on displayed engines and coaches, people keep climbing on them for fun and photos. This makes for a highly unpleasant atmosphere for other patrons. No authorities are around to stop people from... More

This is a nice place to take your kids out on a bright winter day. There are various engines and trains displayed which attracts the young ones. Take a ride on the Joy train. The ride costs only 20INR. I would recommend this train and not the Toy train which costs INR100. That train is a small one where you... More

So many railway coaches and even a miniature track(like toy track) on one side outdoors. Also a joy train ride. Kids will definitely enjoy and someone looking for something different will also enjoy. I enjoyed the rail museum because of the models of the old train coach with description in open and even the gallery inside with small models and... More
