The museum is a 45min train ride from Barcelona (Roadlies Line R2) with four trains per hour. Sit on the left going for the sea views. The museum entrance is 100 yards from the station, and €6 for an adult. While there are small exhibits, models and railwayana inside, the main interest is outside where, around the turntable, is a...

For train lovers a really interesting museum Full of trains from the old old to the new . Steam trains that I love to diesel types. All for 3e each ,the staff are really nice . You could spend hours looking and reading the plaques on these engines in English even a written part for children to understand.

Good value, even if you didn't think you'd be interested. We actually managed to spend over 2 hours here. Recommend you head upstairs and watch the film first.

We stayed in Sitges and decided on a little day trip out. We decided on Villanova just because it's one train stop along. Having a quick look on the web I found the train museum. My husband loves trains and we do love going to museums in general so we popped along here and we were glad we did. It's... More

This is well worth the 40 minute train journey from the centre of Barcelona. There is an extensive collection of engines, many of which you are allowed to climb onto the footplate. The engines are very accessible, making it easy to get up close and see how they work. There are also a few preserved carriages. Special mention must go... More

A lot of trains to see, some you can get in. A small kids inside play area, another one outside. The exhibit it's outside so you better have good weather ... I do not recommend going there with rain...

The history of the railways of Spain are here for you to enjoy. So many old steam and diesel engines, some of which you can climb aboard. When you have had enough of looking at them, you can go upstairs for an informative video about the development of Spanish railways. They offer versions in English and French if you enquire....

Is one of the biggest (collection of railway engines of Spain. My recommendation is to join a guided tour t to maximice the visit . Childrend friendly (they can get in the engines, there is a play área inside) Its a pitty that there is no option to have a ride in a restored train!
