A one-time rail depot still chugs along with nearly 100 train-related vehicles on display - and even lets you operate some!
On the site of a former state railway depot in Pest, this open-air museum of more than 70,000 square metres (17 acres) has more than 100 train cars or rail-related vehicles on display. Cracking good fun for kids from eight to eighty and beyond, its highlights include a steam locomotive from 1870; a 1912 dining car from the legendary Orient Express; and the Arpad train, which in the 1930s did the Vienna-Budapest run in three hours. Furthermore, visitors don't merely gaze at the trains, but get to climb on board and sometimes even operate them. There are also interactive exhibits, a simulator which lets you play train engineer (and see how tricky it can be). The little ones can hop on a miniature train around the park. Closed January through March.
