Tiny museum with plenty of old model trains, but the must-see is the huge, always evolving, model in the last floor featuring Paris and the French countryside with remote controls for Children to play with the trains.

I am not a particular train fan, but I loved the mise en scène on the upper floor. For train lovers, must be even more of a treat. Well worth the visit.

The Rambolitrain is a Cheap little museum about toy train right next to the St Lubin's church. The staging is quite impressive and the showcase are interactive.

Saw this advertised so had a visit, despite no interest in trains. Very well presented, good history, and a wonderful masive train 'set' on the top floor. Entrance charge very reasonable.

I had the feeling to be a kid again....Just enjoy this incredible collection. Spend enough time and don't hesitate to come back to a room to discover all the details. Not far away from the railway if you come from Paris (10 minutes walk).

This little museum is a beautiful little gem. Yes it is little but it is so well pit together and detailed. The collection is amazing and could really benefit from more space. A bad note to who I think is the manager of this place...More
