The Collection

The complexity of a museum with the characteristics of the National Railway Museum is due to the enormous heritage diversity, the quantity and quality of the collection and its national dimension. A 160-year legacy, from the early days of the steam locomotive to the railroad of the future.

The collection consists of about 36,000 objects, many with considerable weight and volume, and are spread within several categories, ranging from rolling stock to tariffs and Ticketing.
