nice place to hang out and go through the history of railway transportation in Kenya. The rates are affordable and there is quite a lot to see

This is truly a hidden gem. Getting there was quite easy and you wouldn't believe you're in the CBD. There are no staff on site really except at the ticket office but everything is self explanatory. We went with two children (3 & 9) and it was fun for all. I believe that KR could do more with the museum to generate more interest. The old coaches are clean and well maintained as well

This is the cutest museum I have seen to date. There are many exhibits here, albeit unorganized, yet it is very informative. The railway has an interesting history filled with many famous characters. Although the museum is a must see, the staff is terrible and you’re made to feel like your inconveniencing then by being there. I would also recommend the walk from the museum back to downtown. The roadway is lined with murals that are worth stopping to get a proper look at.

Nice history. Nice old trains. Very small exhibition when we take to account the critical role the railway and lunatic express played in this country!

Very historic and educational place to be. More than 100 years rich of The East African Railway info all in one place. Just great and thumbs up for having the site.

A nostalgic place. The railway museum is a little known place in the heart of the city centre. It is filled with pictures and items that tells us about the history of East African rail and water transport. Definitely a place to visit again.

Great place to take the kids for a bit of historical lesson. The service could use a bit of improvement. Over all it was a great place to be.

Interesting and beautiful old trains from the iconic railway. Also be sure to visit the art studio and check out the great graffiti art along the wall there.

The amount of history here and the state of well kept locomotives is impressive. Anyone who wants and insight to early colonial Kenya should visit.
