Overview

Open 11.00 Last admission 16.00. Please wrap up warm if visiting in winter. We are a small volunteer-run museum, so sorry - we don't have a cafe. We are located approx 400 ft after the totally separate Ingrow Loco Museum. We are close to the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.You don't have to be a railway enthusiast to enjoy our museum! Over 60 television programmes and films have featured carriages from our museum. Watch the videos. Listen to the sound presentations as you sit inside the carriages. See the differences between 1st, 2nd and 3rd class. Signs, posters and small exhibits.
