After advice from the Victorian and Commonwealth Governments, Puffing Billy Railway have made the decision to temporarily close until further notice.

After more than 10 years of building, collecting and researching Railway items from a bygone era, Puffing Billy Railway's much anticipated Menzies Creek Museum opened on Monday 24 February, 2020.

The new historic museum covers a space of 1160 square metres and houses over 80 exhibits, including rare operational steam and diesel locomotives, carriages and a rail tractor, as well as an operational boiler house that services steam engines, fluid pumps and 500 brake horsepower generators.


Free entry with your train ticket!

Free for all train ticket holders, passengers can now explore the newly opened museum either before or after their steam train ride on Puffing Billy.

Those wishing to visit the museum as a non-train traveller are also welcome along for free.
