Inaugurated in May 1985 as the National Railway Museum, it is located on the grounds of the RENFE Station, and is managed by the Association of Friends of the Railway.
The installation of this means of transport began in Spain in the middle of the 19th century. From this moment on, Alcázar was configured as an important railroad junction, which meant the progress and development of the city.Show more content

For the most expert and interested people in this field, we offer a deepening in multiple aspects of the History of the Railroad, both by means of the visit, as well as by the use of our library.

In the open air you can see a steam locomotive from 1864, manufactured for the Compañía del Norte; a Renfe diesel shunting locomotive; an intermediate trailer of the prototype of the German-made ferrobus; a closed wagon from the end of the 19th century, as well as other elements: fixed steam boilers, track machinery, traffic lights, mechanical signals, etc…
It shows ticket machines, locomotive parts, locomotive manufacturing plates, diverse track work material, catenary electrical work material, telephones, switchboards, caps, station and locomotive lamps, scale model, MZA lounge car tableware used by King Alfonso XIII and a great variety of photos and transport titles.
It is an old restored watering place with three floors. The first with a stationmaster’s room, the second floor dedicated to the library and projection room and finally on the third floor a forge of the steam era in which tools and utensils are found.
