About
The largest model railroad exhibition in Finland with engines using real whistling sounds. The museum also features a wooden steam train, one of the three existing trains with Masson engine, running through 3 rooms on rails over 2.5 meters high! Visitors have an opportunity to act as engineers for the model trains, and see the development of railroad history. The cafe Onkapannu has always fresh ground coffee and delicious pastries. Museum is loca- ted right next to the railway station. “I will always try to put trains that I believe are of interest to each visitor.” Trains run exactly the same way as VR, see how the train's safety Block system works, but on a smaller scale. The performance takes 45 minutes.

Small but nice museum. All kind of toy trains and also real train and railway memorabilia. Miniature trains running on schedules are very interesting.
Must guard children so they won't touch the trains. Nice cafeteria.

This museum was quite hard to find. But ot is located near the main street so it is necessary to watch the street signs. Museum was quite good. Some interesting toys. And the man at museum was very friendly. Good place to go with family and especially with children.

Kiehtova junien pienoismaailma, jota omistaja auliisti esittelee. Pikkuväen kanssa täällä viihtyy pidempäänkin.
Fascinating world of miniature trains. The owner shows the place willingly. With little people you enjoy this little place even for a longer moment.

The museum is homelike place to visit and play to everyone. There you can find all types of models of trains, vans, lokomotives starting from year 1820. A huge plan of the city with a train station and animated trains will amaze you!

Kouvola Model Railroad Museum is situated in the city center, only 100 meters from the railway station, in an old wooden school building (built in 1897). However, it may be a bit difficult to find it, because the entrance is from the inner ward of a block.

This is a wonderful place to see interesting model railways. Children may hold the steering-wheel of trains or even run her or his own engine on the track.

There is also a cafe named Onkapannu in the same building. You get coffee, tea, homemade pastries, sandwiches and salty pastries there.
