The museum is good but the simulator activity which they offer for 300 rs per head is highly overpriced. The technology used is outdated and staff is highly unprofessional. This activity is Not worth the money.

Well, given it’s so cheap at least you could argue that it’s value for money… there’s a tiny little train that goes round for about 5 minutes, you’re not allowed to look in any of the locomotives they have there, and those they do are in complete disrepair. The museum is minimal and none of the interactive features work. The diesel simulator is good fun, except for some guy coming in and repeatedly telling the children how they should be driving it properly and thus sucking all the fun out of the experience.
The most shocking part is the ‘exhibit’ of the royal train…pictures attached. I’ll let you make your own judgement.

Due to COVID, the crowd is moderately less. It ain't so less that you feel scared being alone but neither crowded. The train rides are the charmers.

It was the second visit of my six year old (last was when he was 4). This time he had ofcourse a lot more fun and was able to put his experience into writing after coming back. He also drew engine after coming back. He was excited to see rail tracks and engines. I did not go into much teaching mode or making him learn any names of train.

While my 19 month old was just happy to run around. We took him in the pram and during the end of our visit made him walk.

Don't miss the indoor display on first floor.

Can bring own food and enjoy a relaxing picnic with family.

2.5 hrs is good enough time to spend there. One can also head to Khan market post rail museum for better dining experience.

A great place to visit with family and friends, especially for kids. It has a great collection of trains belonging to different periods and different countries.

The toy train & Joy train ride are very enjoyable.

Must See –Miniature India, First floor, Indoor Museum.

A small cafeteria and souvenir shop also is present.

Location is very accessible, nearest Metro Station - Sir M Vishveshwaraiah Moti Bagh, Pink Line

Parking – Available.

National Rail Musuem, New Delhi

A must visit for Rail enthusiast and for kids who want to explore the history of Railways. Located at Chanakyapuri are, besides the Embassy of Bhutan, there is ample parking space. Entry fee is Rs 50 from M-F & Rs 100 on Sat-Sun.
Souvenir shop was below expectations and there was hardly anything which one would like to buy. Rail Musuem covers the History of Railways from beginning to British India and present .
Exhibits in the premises are well maintained and informative

You always feel like a child when visiting a Museum.
The museum is well kept with hundred of exhibits inside the museum building and dozens of railway coaches, engines and other rail related equipment on display.
You can buy tickets for toy train, joy train and a diesel engine simulator.
You can easily cover the museum in 3 hours.

It is a great place for Rail fans. All the information related to Indian railways is available in the museum. Train rides are also available that can be enjoyed by kids as well as young and old ones. A number of old locomotives and coaches are also available to explore. Overall a nice place to visit in Delhi.

This place is in chanakyapuri and have entry ticket for kids & adults too. Will recommend to see this place once so that we can know the old train and their structure. Interested place for kids as there is toy train and you can take ride in it. As usual crowded in weekends so go on weekdays.

Overall good place for kids to gain knowlage. Toy train is there for fun. Neet and clean washroom. Large area for explore. Out side food allow in museum. Canteen available but food is not ok. We ordered fried rice with manchurian and paneer dosa both were below quality. Rice was uncooked, lots of oil in dosa. My suggestion keep your food with self or eat from out side
