The Danish Railway Museum

The Danish Railway Museum - Trains for the whole family

Lose yourself in 10.000 m2 of rail technology, experiences, discoveries, games and nostalgia.

The Danish Railway Museum is housed in an old roundhouse from 1954 in the centre of Odense. In this rustic, industrial setting, you will experience Denmark’s railway history and get close to lots of engines and carriages. Take a seat on an uncomfortable bench in one of the old passenger carriages, experience travelling first class, peek into a royal carriage or pretend you are an engine driver in the driver’s cab of one of our impressive steam locomotives. Walk among the iron giants or watch our model trains drive through a miniature landscape. There are plenty of opportunities for hours of play and fascinating activities in this big museum for the whole family, and all ages are welcome.

For children – and children at heart

There are plenty of opportunities to touch, play and let your imagination soar at the museum. The popular mini-train runs every day - take as many rides as you like! Visit the large play area featuring a wide variety of rails, trains and building bricks. The children’s railway station is a play area for toddlers and pre-schoolers with platform, rails, carriages, signals and ticket sales. Opening on 1 February 2015.

Ticket prices: Child 35 DKK / Adult 65 DKK - however, surcharges for special events. Get more information about prices and opening hours at
