Why do children love trains so much? Our exhibition space has been transformed into a fantastic and exciting gallery full of surprises for the whole family.
Come and explore the wonderful world of railways, big and small:
- With a hiss, clickety clack and a whistle discover the sounds of the railway hiding inside our signal box;
- Fancy a trip to the seaside or zoo? Put on your smart uniform and let your imagination run wild selling tickets in our ticket booth;
- Take us on an adventure when you pretend to be a driver on board a child sized train, or create your own world with track building toys;
- If all this is too much, cosy up in our storytelling space and read about some of our favourite railway characters.
Full of amazing railway toys and models of different shapes and sizes, this colourful exhibition is perfect for nostalgic big kids and energetic little spotters alike.
