An extraordinary museum!

The museum is one of the highlights of a visit to the Bluebell Railway. It is a fascinating museum with exhibits to engage and intrigue all visitors from small children upwards. It is situated at Sheffield Park station on Platform 2. (There is no extra charge to visit the museum).

Many of our visitors can remember travelling on steam trains and a few can even recall being evacuated during the Second World War. Our museum is a wonderful place to re-live these memories.
