STEAM Museum of the Great Western Railway
STEAM Museum of the Great Western Railway tells the story of the men and women who built, operated and travelled on the Great Western Railway.
See famous locomotives, ‘drive’ the train simulator and even work the signals in the interactive GWR signal box!
STEAM Museum of the Great Western Railway is housed in a beautifully restored Grade II railway building in the heart of the former Swindon railway works.
The pioneering vision and engineering genius of Isambard Kingdom Brunel led to the Great Western Railway network becoming regarded as the most advanced in the world.
STEAM is also a popular event facility, offering a range of dynamic and versatile spaces for weddings, conferences, launches, parties and more. For information on corporate and private bookings, please contact the STEAM Events Team on 01793 466613 or email Steamevents@swindon.gov.uk.
