The National Railway Museum is now open. Please book your free admission tickets in advance or request a visit for education groups

Central Hall will sit at the heart of the redesigned National Railway Museum site, the gateway to our transformed museum.

Providing level access throughout the site, it will span the road which dissects the museum and unify the site like never before. The new gallery space will highlight innovative technologies and the impact of the railways on our lives.

Sensitively and sustainably designed by UK-based architects Feilden Fowles, the building will reference historic locomotive 'roundhouses'. Clad in recycled copper and with high, glazed ceilings with timber radials, the building will be spectacular inside and out, creating a world class-welcome.
