The National Railway Museum is the largest railway museum in the world, attracting almost 1 million visitors per year to our sites at York and Shildon in the UK. Rub shoulders with railway legends, learn about over 300 years of history, and discover over 1,000,000 wonderful objects.
Whether you’re able to visit us in person or not, this blog will be giving you a fascinating glimpse into goings-on at the Museum, and the kind of exciting stuff that happens here – both ‘on the surface’ in the halls and yards where we exhibit our Collection, and behind the scenes where hundreds of thousands of railway-related objects are stored, catalogued, researched and cared for.
The blog is written by various staff at the museum – you’ll see their names and job titles at the bottom of the posts.
Let us know what you think of our blog posts – we’re very keen to hear from you. You can contact us here, or via the main National Railway Museum website – where you can also keep up-to-date on our busy calendar of events, exhibitions, talks and tours.
