Trip Planner: Europe / France / Grand Est / Haut-Rhin / Mulhouse / Cité du Train - Musée français du chemin de fer
Train enthusiasts can hardly resist a stop at Cité du Train - Musée français du chemin de fer also called "Cité du Train", the largest railway museum in the world. Located in Mulhouse, the museum features an exhibition display by the famed French architect, François Seigneur, called "Le siècle d'or du chemin de fer" (The golden century of the railway). Step through time as Seigneur traces historical rail events from 1860 to 1940. Wander from one exhibit to the next in semi-darkness, and experience the evolution of rail technology and the effect it had on those whose lives revolved around rail travel and the industry as a career. Plan my trip to Mulhouse with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Went there for a concert with Kluzo Revisited. The hall was enchanted. We got the concert and the visit of the trains for one price. more »
Awesome place to discover a lot of train related stuff from the past. Fair prices. One star less because of the low average restaurant food. however, friendly and helpful stuff there too. Can recommend!
Absolutely love this train museum. There is a mini train ride on to take you around the trains. Love the video on TGV and also love the train models and display. Massive space for kids to run around. Adore the souvenir shop with a good collection of books. Although would be lovely to have more options for magnet. Additionally didn’t have the chance to explore all of the museum for some parts were closed as it was still running winter schedule in March.
