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 )

This is part of Spain's national railway heritage with steam, diesels and electric. Easy to find [next to station] and easy to get to from Barcelona. Well laid out but opening hours are a bit restrictive so check before you go.

If you enjoy steam engines (as our Thomas-eductaed children do), then this museum is for you. It boasts over a dozen steam engines, stately machines of a bygone era, plus a few diesels and electric engines. Vilanova is a ~45 min commuter train hop from Barcelona, with a relatively uncrowded beach and a nice city center.

It is the terminal for certain local services The outdoor exhibits are mainly locomotives - steam, diesel, and OH electric. There are several examples of the Talgo trains, There... More
