semaforo - trenorama  MODELRAILWAY MUSEUM


The model railway museum is a meeting place, where the railway-engines stand on their heads and run lying on their backs with the true sounds of whistling, puffing and blowing and with many surprises in store. You will be reminded of your childhood and forget your everyday worries when you see these steam-engines.

Do you know what a glass marble-race is and how it works? Or why the model-engine in the museum does not fall down from the ceiling? How many tons of coal does the fireman shovel into an engine's furnace? Or what is a reed-contact? Do you know the future of the Railway and Container-Transport or the speed of the modern fast trains of today?

If you want to know the answers to all these questions and your own questions then visit the model railway museum in Kouvola. There you will learn the history of the Model railway from yesterday to the present day. From the time of the floor-runner up to the newest and most modern future digital architectural function of Märklin's sytems.

Every child, no matter whether young or old, is allowed to hold the steering-wheel of our trains or even run his own engine on our track!

Learn and experience how you should take care of your model railway, so that your childhood treasures keep their value. Even for the collector and the expert there are plenty of unknown and unexpected exhibits to discover as well.

Our mission: is to collect, preserve, research and interpret the traditions and technologies of Modelrailway, and the History of Kouvola as crossing- and key Railway Station in Finland.
