We saw that there was a transport museum in Vilanova but weren't expecting anything as interesting and well-stocked as this. The collection includes loads of steam engines (Thomas the Tank Engine fans will be in heaven) as well as trains from the 20th century to today. Highlight of the visit for us was a 1960 Talgo carriage - very space... More

It's worth to visit a place with your children. They will be excited. I think that fathers will be excited too.

I was stunned by the vastness of this collection. Located next to the train station, the edifice with the train sticking out, I anticipated an underwhelming visit. WHAT A THRILLING SURPRISE!! As soon as I walked in, I was awed by this superior museum. You don't have to be a train buff to be impressed.

My kids loved this Train museum. It is right beside the main train station in Vilanova Town. They were able to go inside a few of the trains. Kept the kids busy for a couple of hours. Free wifi

I am not a train enthusiast, but I have to admit that this museum is quite worth a visit. The range of carriages and locomotives on display together with the arrangements make for a really nice morning visit - perhaps not in summer, because there a few trees (half of the trains, though are under cover and therefore in the...

One of my favourite train museums in Europe. Great steam trains and unexpected diesels. It is one of 4 Spanish railway museums and probably least known

You can wander round the trains, a few can be boarded ( though none running ). Also there is an area for the kids to play with Chuggington toys. It is not often open (10:30 am to 2:30 pm weekdays, not holidays, as far as we could discover )
