Description

After a short talk and presentation there is free access to the STEAM museum to explore at your own leisure. Free parking is available by parking in the Outlet Centre North car park - STEAM will provide attendees with free exit tickets.

“STEAM - Museum of the Great Western Railway, is in the heart of the former Swindon Railway Works. The museum tells the story of the men and women who built, operated and travelled on the Great Western Railway, a network that, through the pioneering vision and genius of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, set the standard for rail travel.

This story is brought to life with videos - mixing rare archive film footage with the stories of ex-railway workers - and hands-on exhibits and interactive displays, famous locomotives and GWR memorabilia. The museum is peopled by character figures life-cast from Swindon people - many of them former railway workers.”
