Israel railway museum
The museum features the railway history of Israel, its predecessor states and neighbouring countries back to 1892. The location itself is an attraction, as it was the shed for the Jezreel Valley branch of the former Hejaz Railway. The museum features a collection of rolling stock, signs, tickets and other items. The museum has both an indoor and an outdoor section, with the indoor section having been renovated in 2000.
Some notable exhibits
The museum is open Sunday to Thursday from 8:30 to 15:30. Payment is by cash or cheque at the door.
The museum is at Haifa East railway station but passenger trains do not stop there. However, by prior arrangement with the museum manager, groups of 25 people or more who are visiting the Railway Museum may arrange for an intercity train to stop at Haifa East.
