Operational day with the Easter Bunny

The Railway Museum is open on Easter Sunday and Monday with an attractive program that you can arrange individually!

On the one hand, you can visit the vehicle collection of over 30 locomotives, rail buses and wagons within the framework of approx. one-hour guided tours. You will learn everything about the technology and history of the exhibits.

On the other hand, you can take the museum train pulled by a historical diesel locomotive for a ride through the former Darmstadt marshalling yard. You will experience travel as it was almost 100 years ago. Fun for the whole family!

The choice is yours: visit the vehicle exhibition, hop aboard the steam train, or combine both offerings for the full dose of railroad experience!

In addition, the training signal box and the model railroad layout of the historic Darmstadt Central Station from 1846 are demonstrated in the museum building. The permanent way, uniform and ticket exhibitions are also open. The demonstrations and exhibitions are included in both options.

The Easter Bunny has also confirmed his coming. He will be on the museum grounds and may have a small surprise or two for the little guests. We will also take care of the physical well-being with a culinary offer in our cafeteria.
