Welcome to STEAM Museum – A First Class Day Out

STEAM - Museum of the Great Western Railway is housed in a beautifully restored Grade II listed railway building in the heart of the former Swindon railway works. Situated opposite the Swindon Designer Outlet, the Museum tells the story of the men and women who built, operated and travelled on the Great Western Railway. See famous locomotives, ‘drive’ our train simulator and even work the signals in our interactive GWR signal box!
