Museum is currently closed

Canberra Railway Museum, located at 2 Geijera Place, Kingston, is currently closed because of the coronavirus situation but work is continuing to ensure the Museum is ready to welcome visitors just as soon as we can re-open to the public.

Normally the Museum opens to the public each Sunday from 10am to 3pm, with displays of historic steam locomotives, carriages and rail memorabilia. It is the home to 140-year-old steam locomotive 1210 which brought the first train into Canberra in 1914.

Admission charges are adult $6, concession/child $4, family $16.

As soon as we can re-open our doors to the public, we will continue to provide a rail heritage experience for the people of Canberra, the broader Capital Region and visitors to Canberra.

Background

Canberra Railway Museum occupies the original Commonwealth Railways land at Kingston and is of significant heritage value to the people of Canberra.

The importance of this aspect was recognised by the ACT Heritage Council when on 1 June 2017 it decided to register the City Railway Remnants in Kingston on the ACT Heritage Register.

The Kingston site has been progressively developed since 1985 to meet the specialised needs of a rail heritage public museum, primarily by the effort of volunteers supplemented with financial assistance initially from the Commonwealth Government and more recently the ACT Government.

The Museum has been recognised by the ACT Legislative Assembly for its important contribution to rail heritage in the ACT.
