23 March 2020 NEWS: Due to the coronavirus situation, our Museum is currently closed to the public as a health and safety measure.

Canberra Railway Museum, located at 2 Geijera Place, Kingston, is temporarily closed because of the coronavirus situation but work is continuing to ensure the Museum is ready to welcome visitors just as soon as we can safely re-open to the public.

Normally the Museum opens to the public each Sunday from 10am to 3pm, with displays of historic steam locomotives, carriages and rail memorabilia. It is the home to 140-year-old steam locomotive 1210 which brought the first train into Canberra in 1914.

Admission charges are adult $6, concession/child $4, family $16.

As soon as we can re-open our doors to the public, we will continue 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 back to the Museum and its exhibits.
