Our Museum is open 10am to 3pm every Sunday.

Visitors are very welcome. We ask all to be mindful of health measures including social distancing.

Please note: The Museum will open Saturday AND Sunday from April 10 to April 25, 10am to 3pm, as our contribution to the ACT Heritage Festival. All ages are welcome to explore our heritage rail carriages and locomotives.

Canberra Railway Museum, at 2 Geijera Place, Kingston, opens each Sunday from 10am to 3pm with displays of historic steam locomotives, a mainline diesel locomotive, 'Tin Hare' rail motors, carriages and rail memorabilia.

It is the home to 140-year-old steam locomotive 1210 which brought the first train into Canberra in 1914.

Museum admission charges are adult $6, concession/child $4, 3rd and subsequent child free.

The Museum allows us to provide a rail heritage experience for the people of Canberra, the broader Capital Region and visitors to Canberra. Our focus remains:

  • maintain and restore our fleet of former NSW rollingstock, many with direct links to the local area and some more than a century old;
  • further enhance the railway experience of visitors to the museum.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Museum and its exhibits.
