This the finest railroad museum that I've ever seen. It covers the entire history of the railroads, from George Stephenson's Rocket of 1829 to the Chunnel between London and Paris. It also has exhibits on rolling stock, signals, and much more.

It's also located near the train station, making it the perfect place to begin or end your visit to York. And if you're simply passing through on the train, and have a few hours to spare, you can check it out during that time.

Address: Leeman Road,Yor,YO26 4XJ
Directions: From the railway station turn left along Station Road. Take the next left turn into Leeman Road and follow the road for about 150m. The museum is on the right.
