Ik houd erg van het reizen met de trein, dus dit is echt een museum voor mij. Het Spoorwegmuseum is een erg leuk en mooi museum met veel oude locomotieven. Er wordt een mooi overzicht gegeven van de trein door de jaren heen. Met slecht weer is het museum ook prima te bezoeken door de vele overdekte ruimtes.
