Museo del Ferrocarril de Madrid

In Madrid you can learn more about the great train journeys of the nineteenth century, the design of the first express train and the arrival of the modern era, with the AVE high-speed trains. How would you like to visit the Madrid Railway Museum?

What is there to see in the museum?

On one side, there is the central exhibit, where you can see locomotives  and carriages from different eras exhibited in chronological order. As you lean out of the windows and walk their classic corridors, it will be easy to imagine how people traveled back then.

On the other side, there is a series of rooms arranged in corridors with additional exhibits.One focuses on station clocks, another on scale models of landscapes and a third on different types of tracks.

Don’t forget the museum also has a library and an archive of enormous historical value.

El Mercado de Motores

The Railway Museum is also the location for one of the capital’s most fashionable activities. On the second weekend of each month, the Mercado de Motores is held at the museum, an event in which designers, artisans and all types of artists come together to sell their work. There are also live performances, a market and a food area that’s worth a visit.

If you’re travelling with children, they will also enjoy the market as they can run about and make a game of it. You are also free to take photos and videos, so you can have a reminder of your trip!

This cultural space’s location close to Atocha and its perfect connection to the public transport network make it one of the most recommended cultural options for those who visit Madrid. A trip back in time to explore the history and evolution of the train in our country.
