The Israel Railway Museum provides an historical overview of railways in the Holy Land and their part in the development of the country from the first line between Jaffa and Jerusalem opened in 1892 under Turkish rule, through two World Wars, the British Mandate, and right up to the revitalized Israel Railways of the 21st Century.
Located in the old Turkish-era railway station of Haifa Mizrah (East), the Museum offers a tour through the past with the sight of modern trains passing by, set against a panoramic view of the city of Haifa and Mount Carmel.
A visit at the Museum can be enjoyed by all ages and it is recommended to incorporate it with train rides on Israel Railways and the Carmelit – Israel’s only underground funicular railway, the bottom station of which is 10-minutes’s walk from the Museum. When planning your visit, please allow at least one hour for your stay here and even longer should you have children accompanying you.
Railway Museum is open to the public on weekdays (Sunday-Thursday), between 08: 00-16: 00.
