This is apparently the biggest Rail Museum in Europe. It is broadly separated into 3 areas. The first area is a Hall with a range of exhibits (and audio guides in multiple languages). This area is dimly lit overall with marked arrows to denote the direction of the visit.
The Second area is a huge covered shed with lots of exhibits charting the history of the Railways in France. I visited in December and this area was cold. The lighting is also a bit difficult for photography. If you want decent pictures you must take a good TTL Flash Unit.
The final area is the outside. When I visited, it was pouring down and very cold so I gave it a miss, which is a shame but there was nothing to be gained by getting wet !
THe Bookshop was extensive and reasonable. Access by the Tram was good - a 200 metre walk from the Museum Entrance.
