“Easily accessible from Warsaw and a great day out, even if not a railway enthusiast”
The museum exhibits are mainly outdoors, including many locomotives, carriages and some unusual pieces of equipment that run on tracks. The museum is an easy 30 mile drive from Warsaw and can also be reached by train from Warsaw Central station. We are not particularly railway enthusiasts but thought it well worthwhile making the journey and spending quite a few hours there. But if you are going then try to do that on a Saturday. We went one day to the museum and then returned the following Saturday. Starting at 10.00, but you need to be there a little earlier, there is an excursion in old carriages on the narrow gauge railway tracks pulled by a steam train. There were 2 stops. The first for a short walk in the Kampinos Forest and the second for lunch. You need to take your own and the favourite seemed to be sausages. Open fires had been lit and sticks provided so you could barbecue [or burn] your own sausages. And then the return journey back to the museum where there was still time to look around the exhibits. The tour is in Polish but on the day we went there was also an English family of 4 and a non English couple who understood English. Although we were in different carriages the staff arranged for us all to be in one carriage and a young guy was pressed into service as a guide / translator. He was very enthusiastic and seemed well pleased to be able to practise his English. The steam train excursions start late May and finish at the end of September, or at least they did last year.
The museum is accessible for wheelchair users but not sure the access to the excursion train would be good. At the picnic site the wheelchair would need to be "cross country" with a strong pusher. You could stay on / with the train at the 1st stop and the picnic stop - you would just miss the barbecue bit.
