This is not a large museum, but the entry charge is modest, and it's worth a look. Nice selection in the gift shop, if you are a rail buff!

Good for coffee, just plain and simple but clean and staff very friendly. Not sparkling menu choice but what there is well presented and good value for money

At the western end of the IoM steam railway is a delightful museum charting the development and history of the steam railways of Man. It is very well laid out with informative posters. One small part is not accessible by wheelchair. There is a lot to see and it give some of the social history of the island and the influence the railways had on it. There is a wide slection of souveniers on sale. Catering facilities are available in the station buffet some 50m away. Due to its location car parking can be tricky.

The Port Erin railway museum is directly at the end of the tracks for the Isle of Man steam train line in Port Erin. The museum is a great place to pickup railway souvenirs and post cards as well as Isle of Man themed post cards or gifts. They also have a nice collection of Thomas the tank engine items which we may have purchased a bit too many for my son.

The museum itself is definitely worth seeing, especially for the low trivial cost of 1 GBP. The museum has two retired locomotives as well as a few of the actual railway cars used through the years. It has an interesting history of the trains on the Island. I would highly recommend a stop to visit this museum if you are in Port Erin.
