Overview
More
The railway terminus with its intriguingly grand station building, constructed in the early 20th century to service the bustling resort town of Haapsalu, invites you to take a virtual journey back in time, accompanied by steam engine noises, to learn about the evolution of railways in Estonia spanning almost a century and a half. Here you can also see different methods of communicating information, from early telegraph and telephone devices to the wireless communications and television. Old locomotives and carriages made their final stop here and you can also come across a polite stationmaster and a skeleton telephone, or visit the old post office. This is all the Station, a place of arrivals and departures through the prism of the past.

What you want to see are the engines and they are accessible without a ticket. The bus from Tallinn let me off right at the station

A very oldschool, beautiful not-anymore operating train station. However, it is in a good condition. Looks very sweet - if around, definitely worth a visit.

Here we were when first arrived in Haapsalu, in Haapsalu Bussijaam, i.e. the Bus Station. This Bus Station is settled now, in what was in the past the Railway Station. And after our first stop in this place, we several times passed by that charming...More

Lot of old rolling stock outside and a small display inside. Many signs only in Estonian, though. I think you can visit the locomotives without paying anything...

Interesting place to visit for all ages! There is beauty in the old trains and the magnificient station but also a bit of sadness of not being used anymore.

No railway to Haapsalu any more exists, but some interesting staff has been saved for future generations. Small museum, worth visiting
