My granson loves to go there -again and again. Museum and even a trains for riding, Damp engine, and even a small train for the youngest. This is a place you must visit if you visit Hamar.

Ok place to kill an hour with the kids. But I fell it lacks something. And it would not hurt to refresh the place a bit.

One of the better train museums I have visited. A nice combination of a quite modern exhibition hall and a large outdoor park area with a moving narrow gauge steam train. There are also thematic exhibitions in the old museum house on the grounds. Whereas the main exhibition hall is modern and well up to date regarding presentations and the societal impact of railways in a sparsely populated country like Norway, the older exhibitions are much more static and does not live up to modern museum standards. I visited out of season, and there is no opportunity to buy any food or drinks, apart from an automat in the main building. In summer, there is an old restaurant car serving as a a cafe in the park. Nice little shop in the main building. For those with an extra interest in railways, there is an extensive library service in the same building, with possibilities of searching for archives and pictures.

Being a train driver, I loved it.. ;)
The museum offer a free train ride to the other side and a tiny train for kids.
the main building has activities for the kids and lots of information about traindriving trough the times. while the outside areas have the big steam engine stored.

If you like trains this is the place to go when you are in Hamar. I have visited the museum a couple of times since the opening a few years ago and I will go there again when I'm here and have time. It is quite big and can give you an insight in the history of railways and trains in Norway.
