“Visit to rail Museum with Kid”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

The collect in the museum is good but quite a less quantity considering the fact that Indian railways is almost 150 years old. One has to invest more time understanding the collection kept as the information on display is quite less.

The engines and boggies kept outside are extremely bad maintained. There are plenty of scope for improvements. Kids enjoyed getting into all the engines. here again there are almost no information on the display.

the best part of the toy train ride which of course everybody cab enjoy. The view of cross section of a engine is also good except that it has scope for plenty of improvements.

Its was overall a good asset maintained badly by Indian Railways. Anyways its worth going ones with kids.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

A very nice and well organized museum in the heart of the city, must visit if you are in Delhi. I am sure kids would certainly love this place and adults too would have great time at this place. One would get to know how railways have evolved.

“good for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The National Rail Museum of Delhi is very good. It is an amazing place to know about the Indian Railways. Well, it's a place where you and your children especially can enjoy. There's a small toy train that runs through the open complex of the museum, children enjoys in that train very much. The building in which there is all the information is pretty big and good. There are electronical displays of the trains, everyone enjoys watching that. The cafeteria is OK. The place is peaceful and awesome for train lovers.
