National Railway Museum

Enjoy stimulating science-packed shows, games and puzzles as we get the whole family working together to solve problems this summer.

Discover something different with every visit, whether it’s a new activity or an interesting object you had yet to find. You might learn something newor use skills you hadn’t realised you had.

This summer our most popular shows and experiences are joined by a rotating programme of hands-on activities that challenge you to invent new solutions to age-old problems by thinking outside of the box and asking big questions.


Discover the best way to get from A to B in Screwball Signals. Pit your wits against gravity with our Marble Run. Show us what you know in our interactive Science Shows. Roll the dice and overcome obstacles on the way to your destination in Passenger Go, or let us take you through South Yard on a classic Steam ride.
