  • Taking the train from Copenhagen to Stockholm is really a treat five hours long through gorgeous scenery of beautiful Sweden 🇸🇪 with a lovely bistro on board with too not a bad selection for lunch.....  more »
  • The staff are nice and the idea is not bad but the museum is simply gloomy and creepy. The hall with trains is painted in black with very soft light which makes it hard to see and not at all...  more »

  • Really good experience.. If your kids like train then they will really love it... It is also good place for adults.. They can really admire how the trains have evolved over periods of years..very well decor and ambience made with nice lighting.. If you are in Brussels worth visiting with kids.
  • Brilliant museum. If you like trains then we'll worth it. The first building isn't great but the second building (90% of it) is fantastic. Looks to look at and interact with. 4-5 hugs great halls with trains and carriages which you can board. Honestly brilliant to visit.
