Vision 2025: The World's Railway Museum

Vision 2025 will transform the National Railway Museum, York, and Locomotion in Shildon. We're on a six-year journey to become a global engineering powerhouse and a reinvented, inspiring 21st-century attraction.

With this investment, our transformed museums will show the cutting-edge innovations shaping our world today—alongside the extraordinary birth and growth of the railways.

By celebrating the past, present and future of railways and engineering, we will capture the hearts and minds of the next generation of engineers, innovators and thinkers.

And our future doesn't stop there—we're transforming Station Hall, too.
