‪Fabulous hidden gem!‬
ספט׳ 2019
‪I was at the Dinan rail station - in need of serious TLC - and came across the Rail Museum in the main station building. Two young students were on duty and I bought my ticket, a few Euros then just wandered. It was tremendous. If you are interested in railway history, in model railways, in art, then this is well worth a visit.

The place is packed and very well displayed. There are Rail Ad. Posters, some by Dali. There are displays of equipment and memories of a gentler age of travel. All in all it is a very informative place and deserves attention.‬

‪Totally nuts - but in a good way!‬

‪Who would have thought so much fun and interest could be caused by heaps of old train sets, manikins with colourful hats & WEIRD moustaches and travel poster prints signed by Salvador Dali? Well there's that & more amongst this fabulous collection in, what has to be said, an extraordinarily beautiful period station building.‬

‪Un bricolage d'articles relatifs aux chemins de fer!‬
לבד • אוג׳ 2018
‪Easy to find, being situated in the SNCF station at Dinan and good value at €5 entry, the museum is a fascinating if rather jumbled up collection of material about French railways, both real and model - there is a large section on the history of Jouef model trains and a good model of Dinan station in the 1950s together with a large operating model railway that will appeal to the younger rail enthusiast. The focus of the collection is very much on the old French mainline companies and post-war SNCF, with some excellent apprentice pieces from now closed railway workshops and whilst there is an interesting display on the history of the railways in the St Malo area, I looked in vain for anything on the narrow gauge railways of Brittany - may be it was there but my French wasn't up to the job ! The reproduction signal box and lamp room are good but someone please redo the wigs on the mannequins. Overall, worth a visit if you're in the area.‬

Merci pour votre visite! la taille du musée actuel doit grossir dans les années à venir. Concernant les voies étroites de Bretagne nous laissons cela aux associations spécialisées du Chemin de Fer des Côtes d'Armor de Langueux et de Guiscriff pour le Réseau Breton. A bientôt de vous revoir!

‪Situated at Dinan railway station ideal for a rainy afternoon. Museum is full of railway models and memorabilia of all kinds plus video presentations. Plenty of bits to buy for your own train track and some lovely posters. Not that expensive and when you have finished take a look at Dinan station which is Art Deco‬

‪Visit to rail Museum -Dinan railway Station‬
זוגות • יולי 2016
‪Situated within a 10 minute walk of the town centre, this a museum run by enthusiasts. Packed full of all sorts of artifacts and exhibits with some entertaining video presentations. Of particular note are the live model rilway layouts and models - very good. A snap shop shot of the history of the French railways. An interesting shop with all sorts of bits and pieces for sale - particularly good if you are a model railway enthusiast. If you have any sort of interest in trains a must see. also, take a look at the walls within the main railway station with interesting murals on the walls‬

‪As a time killer this was very enjoyable, i was expecting lots of model railway exhibitions but instead was presented with a very enjoyable and informative attraction on railway history. Of course there was model railway displays here as well and they were fantastic.‬

‪Trip to the Musee du Rail, Dinan‬
משפחה • אוג׳ 2015
‪Lots of archive displays - tickets, posters, model trains, uniforms, etc and also a fantastic model railway. Inexpensive - took two 14 years olds boys and an 11 year old boy and they seemed to love it. Spent over an hour there and it was very good value for money (2015 - 3.50 Euros for under 12 and 4.50 for others). Also bought a poster and postcards in the small shop which I'll frame when I get home!‬

‪This is a quirky place but great fun and fascinating. The staff were very friendly and happily showed the highlights of the massive model layout at the back of the museum. ‬

‪Quirky little museum‬
זוגות • ספט׳ 2014
‪Housed in four rooms in Dinan railway station this little museum is stuffed to the rafters with railway models and memorabilia of all kinds; from Brittany, from France more generally, and to a lesser extent from other countries. The amateur enthusiasts who run it clearly want to put their entire collection on display, and have felt unable to decline any gift - even of a knitted toy train! The museum also includes a small cinema, and a rebuild of Dinan's 19th century signal cabin. Most impressive item is a detailed model of a travelling circus and fairground - and of the train that transported it. Perhaps mainly for the rail buff, but there is enough in this rather odd little museum to interest the general visitor. Open only in summer.‬
