A small entrance fee gets you into this large display of mostly Spanish trains and railway equipment. The history is interesting the staff are enthusiastic and you even get a short ride in a train carriage.

check the timetables but if you like trains you're in the right place. You're to be shown trains and trams from past to present time

If you have few hours to kill, and if you have kids, this is an okay place to visit and it is free on a Sunday. It would be nice if they provide information in English or add it on the description of the displayed windows but unfortunately not so it hard for those who do not understand Spanish to... More

It is free to enter on Sundays.The old steam engines snd rolling stock( some from the mid 19th century) are just a delight to see fully restored.There are several exhibitions and plenty of photos and historical items on show.Videos and models are on constant play.We spent ages taking it all in.A great museum.

Wide display of all sorts of engines. I found the displays of industrial engines most interesting and thought provoking. Very reasonable entrance fee

Based on the old FEVE station with extensions, it has a wide range of exhibits, most things are described in English. The workshops are impeccably kept.

This museum gives quite a lot of information about the local trains and mines of the surrounding countryside and other places in Spain. Interesting.

Interesting museum, even if it wasn't to my taste. Railway buffs of all ages would find it fascinating.

We loved this museum as its interactive with a lot of variety. And well worth the €5 for the 4 of us!! Hardly anyone there the day we went. It's open air so bring your jacket, but a great rainy day activity for the family

A modern establishment, 14,000 sq.m. of space including the yard - some mildly interesting railway specimens but honestly you have to be a railway nutter to enjoy it thoroughly. There was a little train in the yard but it wasn't working while we were there. There is no connection to a working railway. Cheap admission, free on Sundays.
