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 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.

Providing FREE ENTRY, passengers can explore the 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.
