RAIL MUSEUM MYSURU
The Mysore Rail Museum was setup in 1979 as the first regional rail museum with an aim to preserve few relics from the era of steam transportation.
Fast forward to 2019-20. The museum has been completely redesigned and refurbished. Museum remained closed for a year during which works were planned and executed in a strict timeline and to high standards. Reconceptualized and renovated rail museum was opened on 14th March 2020. Expanding the geographical reach it is now spread over three acres, the revitalized museum aims at setting a new qualitative benchmark not only in terms of exhibit display and design but also in the matter of variety of its collection and re-imagined landscape. It tells the story of the evolution of Indian Railways by creating a captivating and experiential atmosphere, complementing heritage locomotives and carriages with contemporary art, multimedia, video, and sound.
The galleries in different sections are added and connected visually and spatially by the pathways. A vintage gabled style iconic wayside railway station creates the nostalgia of the bygone era. One can go in for a serious info-gaze into the exhibits, learning about rail-related trivia, or enjoy the ride on toy train which chugs along a circular track, complete with level crossing and a green tunnel. The visitors can explore a section and return to the central plaza for a fresh view from watchtower or stop by for a casual read and coffee or take a peek into the rail coach restaurant.
The museum creates visually stunning spectacles with some outstanding railway behemoths in the background which have been restored painstakingly. It attempts to kindle your interests in the nuances of the Railway world. Souvenir shop offers wide variety of mementos.
