Trip Planner: Europe / Romania / Transylvania / Central Romania / Sibiu County / Sibiu / Museum of Steam Locomotives
The Steam Locomotives Museum is a railway museum in Sibiu, Romania. It houses a collection of steam locomotives and engines.
Inaugurated in 1994, the museum comprises 23 standard gauge locomotives, 10 narrow gauge locomotives, 3 snowploughs and 2 steam cranes. 7 of these locomotives are active, and are used on a variety of special trains for enthusiasts and other groups.
The Locomotives Museum is located opposite the main railway station in Sibiu, comprising the former roundhouse and turntable across the railways lines. Part of the depot area is still used so care should always be taken. In addition, there is usually a narrow gauge steam locomotive based at the depot of the narrow gauge Sibiu-Agnita railway.
The locomotives displayed were built between 1885 and 1959 in Romania and other countries, such as Germany and the United States. PutMuseum of Steam Locomotives into our Sibiu online holiday planner and find out whats close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
Museum of Steam Locomotives Reviews
Nice to see all these train engines,mainly steam but some diesel as well. A crane too and a snow blower. Right next to it is the work shop for the still working old diesel trains more »
As described at previous reviews this place is a old garage for locomotives that are out of service. It is fun to walk around them, see in side and appreciate the power those machines had. As it is... more »
An interesting detour but I don't think this can really be called a museum, it's more of a depot. We were greeted with suspicion by a security guard who wanted to see our passports. There's absolutely no information available, in Romanian or otherwise, so it's basically just a collection of steam engines with no context
Rude staff who yelled at us. Not a place to see if you do not wish to ruin your holiday mood. Mix of 3-4 old steam engines with actual sleeping quarters (which we later found out they we’re not part of the exhibition!) This is not a real museum. Overall disappointing experience. :-/ Staff could not speak english very well.
