Loved it! First time I've been in years but it didn't disappoint. Still awe inspiring engines, and some fantastic pieces of history. The donation of £5 is perfectly reasonable, but the museum is free if you don't have change which is nice because I could come back day after day!

There's also a good spot on a balcony overlooking York Station where you can get a good view of incoming and outgoing trains.

A good way to spend a few hours, would highly recommend you make it a part of your York visit. There's a shuttle from York minster for 3 quid or it's about 20 mins walk.

We visited this Railway Museum in early May 2018. Its within walking distance of downtown York. There was no admission fee but donations are welcome. We spent the entire afternoon seeing the exhibits, the different locomotives, carriages and model railway. Even saw them turn a locomotive on the turn table. There are also specific talks given through out the day. There is lots of history to see for anybody interested in railways. I am a bit of a railway nut so I was in my glory. The volunteers were great and answered most of my questions (except for a real technical one that the volunteer had never thought about before) There are food facilities on site as well. I highly recommend this museum.

Excellent large collection of trains and train related memorabilia. A fantastic selection of interesting objects for adults and activities for children.
