STEAM Museum is closed to the public from Thursday, 24th December 2020 until further notice.

If you have booked an online ticket to visit STEAM after this date we will be in touch very soon to arrange a refund or date change.

Please watch this space and follow us on Facebook to learn more about our collection, and for updates about our reopening.

The STEAM Shop remains online for railway-inspired gifts, quality clothing and more. Every purchase supports the Museum.

Visit our new Museum From Home webpage to explore our galleries and collections online.

Thank you for your continued support in these challenging times. We look forward to welcoming you back to STEAM in the future.


Explore the rich history of the Great Western Railway and hear about the extraordinary things achieved by ordinary men and women during the Railway Revolution.

You'll meet life-like characters, including engineering genius, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. He created virtually every aspect of the GWR - from London Paddington to Bristol and beyond.

Housed in a beautifully restored railway building, you'll find us in the heart of the former Swindon Railway Works (right next to the Swindon Designer Outlet).
