Not a well maintained place to visit. But you can have a look at how the trains were in old initially and you can also see some british deployed locomoties. If you are a machine/Train enthusiast, then it is a must visit.

This is a good train museum to explore and see the beauty of the trains. It is a very historical museum for the trains wherein you can see all the old trains and then understand the current trains

If you are looking for a nearby place to go within Chennai with kids , please include this to your list . It is at Perambur . Roads in google map should take without confusion and if you reach nearby the place is known to many locals and wont miss out . For a person who likes Rails and trains this will add lot of interest . Parking is not at all a problem if you are going by car .
The entrance ticket is sold at a mini train compartment and that is perfect welcome for kids . Tickets are very nominally charged .
There is a toy train ride and it is must do inside if you are with kids . They also modelled train passing through a tunnel and it is really fun . There are various types of old trains displayed and most of them you can enter and take experience . Photos also allowed inside . There is audio visual room where some railway promotion videos are shown . Please check the timings of the show so that you can align your other plans inside museum .
In the end , when we were winding off kids wanted to get to the park . There is a small park inside the museum and we spent around 30 mins inside the park . Totally we spent around 3 hours and it was an overall nice experience . However I want to inform that dont expect any AC rooms with cleaned surroundings inside the museum. If you want to just explore the railway , spend time with kids , near by place in chennai add to your list .

Just forgot to add one key thing . There is no food or water available inside and make sure you carry them . Luckily we carried and kids enjoyed eating inside the park .
