The Railway Museum
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.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
