The Museo del Ferrocarril (Railway Museum) in Madrid, Spain, is one of the largest historic railroad collections in Europe.

It is housed in a redundant railway station called Madrid-Delicias in the barrio of Delicias. The location is near the centre of Madrid.


The railway museum opened in the Palacio de Fernán Núñez, which is now the seat of the Fundación de los Ferrocarriles Españoles. After an agreement between RENFE and the Ministry of Culture regarding the future of Las Delicias station, the collections were transferred to Las Delicias which opened as a railway museum in 1984.

  • Plenty of ancient trains, well maintained, but leaves a but messy impression. Needs further development of the museum concept. Good to visit with children. If you are around, do not hesitate to go...  more »

  • Amazing. Really. If you come to Madrid and want to see something different this is an absolute must. I was expecting something much more modest but the amount of real locomotives and trains from all ages is overwhelming. The little modelling trains are nice too and you can even enjoy a nice coffee in the train restaurant true Orient Express style. Kids truly love it and so do adults. I have been a couple of times now and wouldn't mind coming back.
  • Located in an old train station, this museum is a perfect place to have a nice family experience in Madrid. It's easy to get there by metro (Line 3, Delicias Station) from Sol, but it's not a very famous option among the many foreigners that visit the Spanish capital city. Anyway, the place is worth a visit and the price is very affordable (3€ an adult, teacher's discount not available). Even though most of the trains are closed, some of them are open to visitors. There are also several rooms in which old clocks and train models are exposed. In one of the old train restaurant coaches there's a bar. To sum up, this magnificent museum will give you a fantastic overview of the Spanish railway history.
