The Railway Museum is about 20 minutes walk from the centre of town. I know it may sound obvious, but the museum is only worth visiting if you like trains - there is very little other than a load of engines rusting in the African sun.
For the enthusiast there are around 10 engines, ranging from a couple over 100 years old to some massive Beyer Garrets from the 1950s. None of them look like they will ever steam again (without a near 100% rebuild). At the moment most of them are bright an shiny, but this is skin deep - nothing more than a quick spray of paint.
Entrance to the museum is expensive (75 Kwacha - just under £10). For that I would like to see proper restoration and a more extensive exhibition. Hopefully this will come over the next few years!
