An well laid out museum of local railways with a superb model railway. Interesting artefacts and full size exhibits, some of which are able to be entered. Within easy reach of Lecce railway station.

Something different to see. Run by volunteers with some model railways, old poster memorabilia and lots of rollling stock. Very interesting to see what train travel might have been like 60 to 80 years ago.
