“Very fun”

The Swedish Railway Museum
Ranked #2 of 24 things to do in Gavle
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed December 1, 2011

This is the third visit on our trip in Gavle. The museum is very interesting and we could touch the old trains, walking and seeing how a train looked like in the old days. The management system was more complicated also. But the old station is just so awesome!

Can old trains really be fun? I must admit my expectations were on the lower side of the scale, but I'm glad that I gave The Swedish Railway Museum a chance!
It was very interesting to see and actually be able to climb on to engines and waggons all the way from the mid 19th century and up til today. The museum claims it is one of the finest collections in the world, and I cannot argue with that. It is very easy to follow the development of the swedish railways and also get a good insight in other historical events a long the way. There are also model trains and a gift shop. I understand that there are historic trains departing from the central station on a few special occasions every year. It would of course be nice if that was a more regular service, as the museum is situated a bit outside of the city center and might be a little difficult to find.
