Museo Ferroviario della Puglia (Apulia Railway Museum). The building is located right across from Lecce’s train station (as the crow flies), but you can’t get there directly. So we walked from the station and turned right onto Viale Gallipoli, continued until we saw a brown...More

English booklet available. Easy to navigate and a fascinating way to spend a couple of hours. Would be better if you could access it through Lecce station but nevertheless it was well signed. Staff helpful and polite. Inexpensive but worth the detour

Saw a sign for this museum near to the railway station, definitely worth a visit if you like railways or engineering, great models, and full size which you can get onto. Not expensive and worth a visit, check opening times.
