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, travel through the history of Swindon's Great Western Railway and even work the signals in the interactive GWR signal box!

To limit overall visitor numbers, STEAM has introduced timed-tickets for museum admission. All visitors and Season Ticket holders need to book online in advance through the STEAM website.

Housed in a beautifully restored Grade II railway building in the heart of the former Swindon railway works, STEAM tells the story of the men and women who built, operated and travelled on the Great Western Railway.

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.
