One of the landmarks in York is the National Railway Museum. It is just located next to the York Station so travellers can go there conveniently. It is free of entry. There are also signs directing travellers from train station to the museum.
In the museum, trains used in the past hundred years are displayed. Trains for post, food, goods and people were displayed. You can get in some trains to have a look inside while others can only be viewed from the window. There is also an area for children to play in the museum. Children can get on a train and travel in the play area. An art gallery is also placed in the museum.
There are two tours for visitors. One is a train tour to the city centre. A fee is required. The other tour is the Royal Carriages Tour. The tour guide will introduce the collection of royal carriages in the museum. There are only two sessions a day, which is at 11:30 am and 2:15 pm. For more details about the two tours, please refer to the announcements made by the museum.
