On the last day of our tour in Turkey we came across this railway museum sited in a field behind a restaurant. I am not a rail enthusiast, but I thought I'd take a couple of snaps for a mate who is into this sort of thing. I couldn't believe the range of steam locomotives, including 2 by Robert Stephenson...

The locomotives deserve to be better maintained! The collection were impressive anyhow and the park-like surroundings nice.

Just a brief visit on a wet day as this was a coach tour lunch stop at the Azizya Restaurant next door. I really enjoyed it and felt it was well worth 5TL. Some on our tour just dismissed it as a lot of old rusty engines but I will explain why I enjoyed it. Firstly, I'm not a rail... More

This was part of an Aegean Coast tour by RSD Travel. The museum was next door to our lunch stop. Entrance fee is TL 5. Lots of magnificent old locomotives of several nationalities that one could climb into. I fully expected to see Thomas the Tank Engine among them! Some of them were lined up around a real turntable. Haven't... More

My guide described this as the largest train museum in Europe and I believe it. Huge display of locos and some historic rolling stock including Ataturk's own car. As Turkey is the crossroads, I'm guessing this is the best selection of European steam locos around from the WWI, interwar, and WWII period-- I've never seen so many German locos from... More

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the coastal areas visit this museum. Kids and Adults can inspect trains and carriages from inside and out. You can even see Attaturks train including his bath tub. Great place to spend a few hours doing something different.

I knew nothing of this museum until we stopped for lunch and found this adjacent to the restaurant. We spent a good hour or more viewing over 60 engines and rolling stock and the garden, but found the carriage related to Ataturk the most moving exhibit. He may have had several carriages to travel the country and review the troops,... More

Steam locos from France, USA, Germany, Sweden and the UK. Victorian Newcastle built Robert Stephenson tank engine most impressive as was the later Darlington built Robert Stephenson engine. Lovely restaurants in the grounds but avoid the swish retail outlet full of Far Esatern Cruisers willing to pay 20 x shop prices for goods.

Don't miss to visit this museum. After visiting a lot of historical places, take a rest and make a pleasure to your children. After visiting Ephesus, they will have the chance to eneter into the locomotives and trains, to feel like engine-drivers, to touch everything. The trains are very well renovated and you will say that nothing have been touched.... More
