The Narrow-Gauge Railway


It is a special place both for lovers of the history of technology, tourists visiting the most attractive corners of Poland as well as for the young who have yet to discover their passion for the railway and in particular steam locomotives. The Wenecja museum is one of the largest museums of 600mm gauge railway. One can find here several dozens of exceptional exhibits including among others 17 historic steam locomotives (the oldest one comes from 1899, several other from the period of the First World War), cars serving a number of different purposes – freight cars, passenger cars, manual and motor trolleys. The exhibition is complemented by railway infrastructure: a historic waiting room, a level crossing attendant box with a gate, tracks with junctions, points, a sweep used for replenishing water in locomotives’ boilers, turn-table enabling changing direction.
