We're open seven days a week. Book your free admission ticket now to visit the museum. 

Schools and groups can book free tickets here.

Station Hall and other parts of our museum are closed, please check the Visit page for the latest info about closures.

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 bisects 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.
