The Train Museum is the latest addition to the Florentine museums and is dedicated to the world of miniature trains and modelling, just a stone's throw from the Santa Maria Novella railway station.
The heart of the museum is the 'Plastico San Giuliano' - so called by the curator, Marquis Giuseppe da San Giuliano - an immense area of 280 square metres that includes 126 trains in motion, through scenery, people, Italian and foreign landscapes, reconstructed with a truly surprising fidelity of detail. All in 1:87 scale.
A new museum space, enhanced by a model workshop, for everyone: young and adults, enthusiasts and collectors
