National Railway Museum of Pietrarsa

The whole complex stretches over an area of 36.000 square metres, 14.000 of which is covered. The Museum is just one of the unique attractions which together with its unrivalled location and quality of exhibits makes it one of the most important railway museums in Europe, rivalling those of York, Mulhouse, Munich and Lucerne.

The Foundation has embarked upon a mission to turn the Museum into a truly modern cultural center, the ideal backdrop to a vast range of events. It is one of Southern Italy’s largest conference venues and the Locomotive Hangar alone can seat up to 1.000 people.

The Museum’s ability to host a wide variety of events, adopt flexible closing hours and holiday openings has captured the imagination and needs of citizens and tourists appealing not only to rail enthusiasts, but the wider community without detracting from its primary purpose as Italy’s National Railway Museum.
