3.7
#5 of 12 in Museums in Sibiu
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.

  • Easy to find (coming from the city, on the level of the train station crossing the tracks, yes it is possible!!!, and leave on the right side along the tracks on 200m) and free, you enter a depot of old locomotives abandoned and rongees by rust. Nevertheless they remain impressive and the children are happy to climb dedant (with caution). Only a guardian for a few explanations in Romanian only. The magic of the place is enough, though.

  • At least it was free. The locos share space with the current loco depot. They were all in dreadful condition, with no info.  more »

  • A good place to see several steam engines; unfortunately there is no guide, only some references that can be read from a folder you are handed when starting the tour. The engines are well kept, but non-functional; you can only guess how those worked in the past. You can review the exhibition in about one hour if you're not in a hurry. Getting there would have been difficult without Google Maps. All in all, a pleasant experience.
  • The engines are well preserved, but there is no guidance, no text, audioguide or human guide. Also, the only road leading to it is awful, packed earth full of potholes. Recommended only for the passionate.
