A really nice area full of all these old locomotives. Fun to see this little pocket from the past. My 8 year old son was especially impressed with the old wagon Atatürk had used. We were able to see the table where he held meetings and ate dinner, but also the bed he used while travelling.

Located just off the main road in the village of Camlik which is near to Selcuk and Ephesus. The museum consists of a collection of old steam locos and rolling stock that were used on the Turkish railway system. Each locomotive has a plaque with details of each engine including country of manufacture, date it came into service and which... More

A very worthwhile place to visit. Been here many times but it has been improved in more recent years. The usual gift shops etc have appeared but you can have a nice meal in the garden and see some great old trains. Truly some great history and a nice way to pass an hour or two. Easily accessible from Kusadasi... More

On our way to our hotel we passed by this museum and decided to give it a try the next day and that was definitely worth it! It's a huge collection of steam trains ranging from late 19th century to 1949. You can climb into all of them and in most passenger sections as well. A lot is left as... More

We decided to visit the Camlik (pronounced 'Chamlik') as we were in Kusadasi and my husband had wanted to see the museum for some time. Don't take a taxi (far too expensivie), you can travel quite easily to the museum by local bus (they look like minibuses). From the port, cross over the road and take the number 5 bus... More

The outdoor railway museum at Çamlık village of Selçuk district in Izmir Province, Turkey is the largest railway museum in Turkey and contains one of the largest steam locomotive collections in Europe. Albeit they urgently need lots of TLC, paint, oil and elbow grease. The gardens in which they are exhibited are extremely well maintained and this attraction is a... More

Over 60 huge steam engines from all round the world, including USA, the UK Sweden etc. The museum is 20Km from Kusidasi in a small village. Best to take a cab from Kusidasi but don't take one right by the cruise port - way too expensive. We walked further into town and picked up one for around 250 lire for... More
