Spoorwegmuseum (Railway Museum)
Spoorwegmuseum (Railway Museum) Review
Beyond the converted 19th-century station that serves as the entrance to this excellent museum is a vast exhibition space in the style of a rail yard. In addition to dozens of locomotives, three large sheds, called werelden (worlds), take you on a tour of rail history. In World 1, dealing with the birth of the railways, you follow an audio tour (available in English) through an early-19th-century English coal mine. World 2 stages a theater production based on the Orient Express. In World 3, you sit in carriages and ride the rails, while all around you the bright lights, sounds, and billowing steam evoke the Golden Age of train travel. Outside, kids can ride the Jumbo Express on an adventure trip past lakes and through tunnels and water jets. The museum is an easy walk from the city center. Alternatively, trains run between here and Utrecht Centraal Station eight times daily for €2 round-trip.
