The Norwegian Railway Museum

The Norwegian Railway Museum is among Norway's oldest museums, it is in fact one of the world's oldest railway museums. Here you can see trains from a number of different eras.

Norway's national railway museum was established in Hamar in 1896 (!) and is thus one of the world's oldest railway museums.

Here are trains from many different eras. The pellet-fired steam train Tertitten runs many times a day on Norway's shortest railway line, which is only a couple of hundred meters long. The Railway Museum's historic train Caroline is one of the world's oldest, most complete and drivable veteran trains. Especially for children there is the Leikvangen Station and the mini train Knertitten.

The tours with these trains are included in the museum ticket. In the playground corner inside the main building, children can use their imagination to play with trains. The model locomotive Urskog is ready for departure, and in the train simulator everyone can try their hand as train drivers! Every summer, in June, the international children's festival Stoppested Verden (The World Station) is held in the Railway Museum Park.
