Get ready for the long program! Multi-storey museum with plenty of sights. Locomotives, trains from the past and the present. I recommend to families with children and train-maniacs :)

The first (line) train arrived to Nürnberg in Germany in 1835. It may be the the good cause to found the museum here. And as Germany and Europe industrialization was connecting to railway building, this collection is so rich and the presentation is really attractive.

The museum houses a diverse collection of railway equipment, including many items from before the DB existed. Everything is well presented and is generally interesting to the general tourist and enthralling for train nuts ( like me ).
