Great place to visit, especially if you have a train loving little one. The play area is fantastic for kids and the exhibitions are fun and interesting. We visited the Rail Museum on a Saturday and it was not busy at all. Highly recommend for your next day out!

Took two kids 6 and 8 and they had fun at all of the kids' activities. Grandpa and Grandma also enjoyed it and lunch was pretty good too at the cafe. We went during the week and not crowded at all. Stayed about 3 hours. Easy parking.

My partner and I recently visited the Workshops Rail Museum in Ipswich. We were able to check out the displays at our own leisure and also went along on one of the guided tours through the workshops. Very informative and suited for all ages. The interactive displays- which played a video or a voice recording when you entered the area- were definitely a highlight. We went there on a public holiday, and the cafe added a surcharge to our purchase (like many places). A great museum to enjoy at your own pace.
