The Railway Museum in Mysore is one of the oldest and the second largest rail museum in the country.

If you are staying close to the railway station, you can practically walk to the railway museum. Though it is adjacent to the railway station, the entrance to the museum is on the KRS road. In any case it is a short ride by auto-rickshaw from anywhere in the Mysore city.

Many old locomotives are on display, including steam engines. Also on display are the royal coaches used by the Mysore royal family for travel.A small toy train is a kids' delight.
