One-of-its-kind locomotive museum including historical trains and equipment. I didn't know that trains were so impressive machines, it is a journey to history to see and read about a century-old technology that changed the world. The museum has a large garden covered with flowers and trees, also a nicely decorated restaurant suitable also for large groups. You can visit in... More

Well what can I say, this was a welcome surprise! I'm not into steam trains, but we stopped here for a bite to eat in the restaurant located next door. As it cost only 1 euro to enter we thought why not? Plus the toilets are free inside ( so just as cheap to enter museum if only to use... More

Visited this museum when on a cultural tour of western turkey. Had no idea how good it was likely to be. Many steam locomotives from USA, Germany, France which haven't been restored so don't expect shiny painted engines. Range of old carriages too. There is also a large turntable with engines ranged around it. All this for the entrance fee... More

Some of our party were real enthusiast and will no doubt be going back for another viewing. The earliest on display was around 1889 a British small shunter or similar. There were approximately 50 trains in total. French, USA and British.

If you like trains, this will be a great museum for you. So many locomotives to see and the grounds are impeccably maintained with lovely gardens. My husband is a train nut, so this was really special for him.

Everybody heads to Ephesus when they are in this area but make the effort to visit this fantastic venue. 40+ old trains including snow plough trains - beautiful gardens - fantastic restaurant. Even saw a newly married couple having their wedding photographs taken here. Spent a whole morning here.

I discovered the place while I was driving, it is an amazing place to visit, you can feel the spirits and stories of these trains. I took my kids there and they just loved it. They spent the whole day talking about it. My advise is to give it a chance. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
