  • Excellent and fun place to spend some hours with your children. Fun for grown ups as well. Must visit if you have young children  more »
  • We travelled almost forty minutes by bus to reach this museum. Big disappointment on arrival, no indication in English or French, everything is written exclusively in Hungarian. No guide or plan, trains stored outside and clearly abandoned, victims of bad weather... The park lacks maintenance, the trains are not accessible. In addition, we felt like we were disturbing the cashier when we arrived... Efforts are to be expected...

  • Excellent, helpful staff, various opportunities to have fun, from 3 to 103 yo. Turntable, garden railway, models with running trains and outstanding detail, etc. Cool, fun for a morning/afternoon, or if you are really into railways, a whole day. Nice restaurant and buffet, too.
  • Really nice railway museum. I was there with a train lover and he loved it! It is obviously nice taken care of. It is a good place for kids too.
