| “55 miles from Colman’s of Aysgarth” |

Welcome to the National Railway Museum – the greatest railway museum in the world, with almost 1 million visitors per year to our sites in York and Shildon.

We’re home to over 300 years of history and over a million wonderful objects. Visit us and you can marvel at iconic locomotives, watch engineering work in progress in the Workshop, browse our object-filled Warehouse, and let off steam in the outdoor play area.

The Museum is only a few minutes’ walk from York station and the route is signposted:

  • Turn left outside the front of the station
  • Pass the Royal York Hotel and turn left into Leeman Road
  • Continue through the tunnel — the Museum is straight ahead.

There is also a direct route to the Museum via the station footbridge (not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs).
