Miniature Railway

Climb aboard and experience the railways in small scale on our fantastic miniature railway ride.

Journey past gigantic railway objects and through the changing landscape of South Yard. Come back throughout the year to enjoy a different journey as our plants grow and the seasons change.

Please note Miniature Railway tickets are limited and in high demand, and may have sold out before your visit to the museum.

For your safety

Please help us to keep everyone safe by wearing a face covering on the Miniature Railway, unless you are exempt. As always, under-12s must be accompanied by an adult.


Available at the main ticket desk near the museum entrance. We recommend booking your ride on arrival at the museum to avoid disappointment.

Please note we may not be able to run the Miniature Railway on days affected by extreme weather conditions or volunteer availability.
