Swedish Railway Museum

The train rides and the opening of the Train Hall is cancelled for now to avoid the spread of the Coronavirus. We plan for train rides later on this year.


Swedens national museum for railway history was founded in Stockholm in 1915 and moved to Gävle in 1970. Please note that it is not possible to visit the museum due to the renovation of the exhibitions. At the time we can not say when the museum will open due to the prevailing circumstanses. 

Swedish Railway Museum is part of the Swedish National Maritime and Transport Museums.

The planting of parks and gardens along the country's railway lines was extensive for over a hundred years, from the mid-1800s until the 1970s. The research project The railway's green cultural heritage investigate how and why state and private railways' planting activities came about, were organised, and ultimately dismantled.
