Experience the history of Denmark’s railways in the authentic roundhouse from 1954. We have 21 tracks featuring iconic engines and carriages. Look inside the royal carriages, experience travelling first class and see Denmark’s oldest preserved steam engine from 1868. You can enter many of the museum’s engines and carriages. You can sit on the old wooden seats or stand in the driver’s cab of a steam locomotive. We provide a rewarding outing for the whole family, and visitors of all ages are welcome. Visit the child-sized Children’s Railway Station, brimming with trains and rails for you to play with. Go for a ride on the popular mini-train which runs every day. It is possible to enter many of the carriages and engines. All activities are free once you have paid the entrance fee.

We wanted to compare steam trains from Denmark with those from the UK and see the impact of the railways on Denmark. There were great similarities in the early days, then it became very different. It was fascinating to see the international trains and their...More

We visited as a family with a child and we all enjoyed it. Extensive exhibits of old trains and structures tell the story of the Danish railway industry through the years.

Really nice Railway Museum in Odense, Denmark. Lots of old trains totally restored. Among them also royal trains with very luxurious accomodation. Interactive activities and lots of model trains to play with. A must for the family on Holiday.

I went to the museum with my little son who is almost 2 years old. He was so thrilled about all the big old trains.

Our 5 year old boy is crazy about this Museum. The trains, the toys, the atmosphere and the authenticity. We will come back some day, I believe. Wish you a lot of fun with all the technical features.

Great museum with a surprisingly large number of trains, locomotives, and other vehicles. A small space upstairs where children can play. Also, a basic cafeteria. Outside space with miniature trains to ride and to drive. We went there on a rainy day in June, but...More

Under reconstruction at the time of my visit, but still very cool. You get to see trains from all ages and it is rather educational in a funny way. A lot of boys of all ages seem to enjoy this museum

Superbly well designed museum, I´m not a train fan but enjoyed it immensely, mostly due to the figures and real-life scenes surrounding the trains. You can ride a mini-train around the lot, great fun!

I am a volunteer at the Nene Valley Railway, Peterborough, England. For many years our locomotives included Danish State Railways 2-6-4T No 740 "D.F.D.S. Danish Seaways" (Built by A/S Frichs in 1928 - Makers No. 86). This loco left us in 1995 and I believe it came to your museum. Can you confirm this? Is it still with you? If not, do you have any idea of its present location? Many thanks John Stanbridge

Dear John Stanbridge, It is an S-machine sold in 1995 to Nordsjællands Veterantog. Best regards from the Danish Railway Museum
