This is a well thought out museum, interesting for all ages and really well interpreted. It should not be missed if you want to get a true feel of the history of coal and its importance in Spain and in Asturias

Outstanding location, good-sized and many activities to see and do. You can even ride old locomotives! Plus you can look at the history of trains in Asturias and Spain. If you love trains, then this is a great place to go visit!

It's obvious a lot of money has been spent on restoring the old station and installing exhibits but everything felt so static, informative yet boring. Cheap to enter and I would say after 45 minutes you've seen all it has to offer and you would...More

A solid approach to a bit of the technical and social history of trains in a peripheral region and their influence in general wellbeing. A must visit in Gijon, with a careful communication design by Enric Franch, best museum designer in Spain.

Spent an interesting hour and a half in the museum. We were given a brochure in English, but it was a shame that the information on the exhibitions were not in other languages. It was great to see some of the old engines and exhibits....More

A small entrance fee gets you into this large display of mostly Spanish trains and railway equipment. The history is interesting the staff are enthusiastic and you even get a short ride in a train carriage.

check the timetables but if you like trains you're in the right place. You're to be shown trains and trams from past to present time
