After a long time being renovated, cleaned, re-arranged and generally tarted up this museum is well worth the 45-minute tram ride from Piazza Garibaldi. The museum covers a waterside site of about 3 and a half hectares with a number of pavilions. The first pavilion is dedicated to steam locomotives from the first Bayard which pulled the inaugural Napoli-Portici train... More

To tell the truth, I did not expect something extraordinary form this museum but I had to change my mind after visiting it. The place is big, peaceful and at the same time it has much to offer. Great impressions.

Today I visited it for my very first time and I have really good time here. If you are looking for a museum offering culture and history mixed with amusement and surprise, this is the right place. No matter if you are travelling alone, with friends or with family with kids, because we all take trains and to be in... More

The Museum was peaceful and very interesting, there was lots to see and will go back again. The surroundings and building was amazing.

This museum was wonderful. We were shown around by a young lady called Valeria who explained the history of the exhibits. The only downside was the lack of parking. It's a shame for the people in the museum that it wasn't better used. We had a wonderful time; thank you!

Paraphrasing Sheldon in the Big Bang Theory the best possible way to visit Napoli is to start from the trains... the Museum in Pietrarsa is a little jewel in the outskirts of Napoli. First of all the place, an historical factory built on the sea shore, with a magnificent view of the Gulf of Naples. The buildings, perfectly restored, are... More

The museum is difficult to find if you're not a local. The location was described as being adjacent to S. Giorgio station in the Naples suburbs, but there are in fact two stations with that name. We alighted at the wrong station (on the Circumvesuviana line) and were faced with a long trek across town. If my wife had not... More

The museum is the most complete collection I've ever seen (and I have visited a lot of rail museums). The buildings are spectacular and the view even more, you can go only for the view if you are not interested in trains. It is difficult to reach by car, but once you find it there is private parking across the... More

Today, we went on an excursion into Naples to the train museum and the children LOVED it! Our group consisted of 5 adults and 4 children (ages 3 and 4 years old) and they were in train heaven. Though a little hiccup trying to find it (we got on the wrong metro line), we found it rather easily once we... More

A big deception. Dark explanations how to reach. Not open Saturdays and Sondays. Personally I was very dissaponted because an unannounced event avoid me to visit the steam and thriphasic locos area. Few electric locos and missing glorious trains like Settebello and others. Very bad illumination but excellent conservation of the material
