National Railway Museum Port Adelaide
The Museum represents railway operations from State, Commonwealth and private operators on the three major railway gauges used throughout Australia.
It is a fun place for young families and the serious researcher - having a wide variety of steam locomotives, diesel engines and loads of carriages to explore.
There is a theatrette, display galleries and a large professional model railway. Two of the highlights for children are a miniature railway train which operates around the perimeter of the large site, and a train simulator in the main pavilion.
Interactive displays include the role of women in the railways, and the famous 'Tea and Sugar' train that served railway families on the barren Nullarbor Plain. The Shop has a wide range of books, souvenirs, videos, DVDs and books for sale.
The National Railway Museum also conducts several major events throughout the year, and dates/details of those events are on the Museum's website and Facebook.
