The CFR Museum in Bucharest was inaugurated on June 10, 1939, under the name of the Ceferiştilor Museum, during the "Ceferiadei" celebrations, which marked 70 years since the opening of the Bucharest Filaret-Giurgiu railway line.
Located on Calea Grivitei no. 139B, inside the North Station, the museum is located in a building near the last line, at the far right of the station.
CFR Museum is just near the North Train Station and it costs just 4 lei/person. Here you can see the history of trains and the most interesting thing is the trains layout (a city in miniature, where trains follow the routes and traffic regulations). It presents the most important facts of the train heritage history in Romania. It speaks also about Anghel Saligny, one of the most important figures in the evolution of train equipments and there is even a complex diorama picturing a real rail route with all the parts and sections that you see when you travel by train. Sometimes they also host temporary exhibitions or conferences connected to industrial heritage.
