  • This rail museum is worth avist while in Chennai which is very much a huge part of the Indian Railway history. One can see many trains and it Engines which forms an integral part of the Railway lore.  more »
  • This museum is the best place to visit for those who have some interest in the history of rails in India and how the journey of trains began. The entrance fee is reasonable and even the ticket window ...  more »

  • Definitely worth a visit. Although the campus is not very large, it is big enough to take a couple of hours to see the whole place. Included in the ticket was one toy train ride and Rs. 10/- of food coupon free. As you enter the gate, on right side is a small cafeteria, which keeps some basic snacks. Not very expensive. Behind that is an air conditioned restaurant in a train coach...the ambiance is good, but food is not great. Prices too are not very high. As you enter the indoor part of the museum, there are quite interesting pictures and exhibits...all these are spread in two floors. On the ground floor there is an art section which requires separate ticket for entry. For lovers of art, it is worth a visit. All art works are around the theme of journey and trains. There is another indoor museum on the far side beyond exhibits of outdoor museum...houses some exhibits on green energy and a working train signalling model. Outdoor museum is good enough for a stroll but still not a match to Delhi Rail Museum. At times there are some philatelic exhibitions going on which are really cool.
  • A very good place for children's and parents where there was many entertainment there in the rail museum, we can see all old type of rails displayed and the sculpture which is done in old scrap materials which was awesome. There are two to three park play areas where kids will sure enjoy a lot. Entrance fees Adult: 50 RS in which tea is included Children below 13: 25 RS in which a biscuit is included Overall a 3 to 4 hr enjoyable place 😊
