This is a very interesting and fun site. They have a BUNCH of trains from all different eras, and some cool exhibits. Try out the train simulator :-) Also, there's a little cafe inside.

It is a nice museum, lots of trains. Nit a bargain though, for a reason: maintenance must cost a small fortune.

The railway museum is the perfect museum for the whole family. A lot to see and extensive information about trains and the Dutch railway system. Many nice train attractions. Beautiful location in and around an old Utrecht train station.
