Museum of the Great Western Railway

Based in the former Swindon Works, tells the story of the men and women who built, operated and travelled on the GWR.

Swindon Railway Works

Museum of the Great Western Railway is housed in a beautifully restored Grade II listed building in the heart of the former Swindon railway works. It tells the story of the men and women who built, operated and travelled on God’s Wonderful Railway.

70,000 Square Feet

At 6,500 square metres (70,000 square feet), it is more than five times the size of the former GWR Museum which it replaced in 2000, and today it is home to many one-of-a-kind exhibits that will take you back time to a period of great technological innovation and strenuous manual labour.

IK Brunel

Celebrating the achievements not only of IK Brunel, the engineering genius behind the Great Western, STEAM also recounts the contribution of the many thousands of ordinary people who made the GWR one of the world’s great rail networks.

Opening Hours
