See an innovative handcar moved by a modified bicycle at Nairobi railway museum, a museum of the East African railways adjacent to a key railway station. View curious items on display like tortoise calculators, wooden box and Bakelite phone sets, brass bells, and a Kenya-Uganda Railway water filter. You can tour vintage steam and diesel engines and wooden passenger coaches in the spacious yard and check out the 1923 Tanganyika Railways locomotives used in the Hollywood classic movie "Out of Africa." You must make an appointment to see operational steam locomotives, as they are occasionally used for tourist excursions. See a model miniature railway inside the building and a bicycle trolley. Before you head to Nairobi, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Nairobi road trip planning website, to make sure you see all that Nairobi has to offer, including Nairobi railway museum.
