The museum is situated behind the Bulawayo Railway Station, in the Raylton suburb of Bulawayo. Models as well as steam and diesel electric locomotives are put up for display.

The Railway Museum, one of the few of its kind in the world, houses a collection of many obsolete railway memorabilia ¬≠steam locomotives, rolling stock and station buildings – with a variety of other exhibits dating back to 1897 when the first steam engine rolled into the country. Bulawayo is the country’s railway junction and marshalling yard.

The Museum is owned by the National Railways of Zimbabwe and opened in 1972, the Museum displays a wealth. In Centenary Park it is open daily including Sundays from 09h00 to 17h00.
