Railway Museum

Lithuania’s railway museum is located on the second floor of Vilnius station which dates from 1861. It was founded in 1966 by Georgijus Žemaitis. The indoor section is divided into three sections. The first shows the history of railway stations, using chiefly photographs as evidence of systems of luggage handling, ticket issuing and other functions of stations. The second displays the kinds of telegraphic equipment used on railways, and the third is concerned with railway construction, showing dumpy levels, theodolites, track fastenings and tools. A 20 m timeline details the development of Lithuanian railways. The museum’s steam and diesel locomotives are displayed in the open about 200 m from the station.
