Whatever your age, our friendly team of volunteers will add to the STEAM experience as you tour the Museum.

They will welcome you aboard three famous locomotives:

No. 3717 City of Truro, No. 6000 King George V and No. 2818. 

(Please note, there is currently no access to the footplate of No. 4073 Caerphilly Castle while our new HST nameplate exhibition is in Caerphilly Hall.)

You'll even get to find out how the controls worked on these great engines!

Expect to hear some fascinating anecdotes of what it was like to be a GWR engine driver, fireman or labourer; or an engineer, craftsman or office worker at one of the 'Shops' inside GWR's Swindon Works.

Our volunteers are happy to help with any questions you may have about the GWR locomotives and artefacts we have on display at STEAM. 

This great experience is free with standard admission and to STEAM Season Ticket holders. Purchase online tickets here, or pay on the day.

Look out for our occasional Saturday tours of the Museum too!  
We look forward to welcoming you soon!
