The Railway Museum is located in the old Turkish-era railway station of Haifa Mizrah. It offers a historical overview of railways in Israel and the part they played in the development of the country. The Museum is set against a panoramic view of the city of Haifa and Mount Carmel. The main exhibits building was once the shed that was home to the Hedjaz Railway that transported Muslims who were making their way to the Haj pilgrimage. Nowadays, the building houses locomotives, coaches, wagons and displays, including the last authentic steam locomotive in Israel. There is also a small exhibits building that displays historical equipment, work tools, photographs, tickets, stamps, a small model railway layout and more. The Railway Museum is suitable for all ages and a visit that includes a train ride to or from the Museum can make the experience truly perfect. Tip: Trains do not stop at the East Haifa Railway Station where the Museum is located but by prior arrangement with the museum manager, groups of at least twenty-five people who are visiting the Museum may arrange for an intercity train to stop there.
