Christmas at the National Railway Museum

Make memories this festive season at the National Railway Museum. Get the family together and immerse yourselves in the atmospheric halls of iconic locomotives and the unrivalled collection of engineering firsts.

The Railway Museum has a whole host of free festive activities in store to keep your children entertained this winter:

– Make your very own working cardboard railway lantern to take home with you

– Create your own light-up Christmas card

– Solve challenges to design a Christmas picture with the Pixel Puzzles!

Jump onboard the Miniature Railway for a little taste of train travel. You can even relive Mallard’s record-breaking run on the Mallard Experience. After time well spent among the giants of the rails, warm up with a hot drink and indulge in festive treats in the cafés. Mince pies, chocolate log and Christmas cake are sure to please all —with not a “bah humbug!” to be heard.
