About Us

Home to over 300 years of rail history and more than a million fascinating objects, the National Railway Museum is the world’s greatest railway museum and one of York’s best-loved event destinations.

Just a short walk from York station, the museum is convenient as well as stylish. Our multi-award-winning venue offers a wide range of event spaces: a dedicated conference centre with six meeting rooms; two atmospheric halls housing iconic railway objects; and the beautifully restored railway carriage the Countess of York.

Daytime meetings convene in bright, flexible spaces complete with the latest technology and views of the Great Hall. Dinners, awards, receptions and weddings take place among the objects and carriages, creating unique, exclusive experiences for guests.

The National Railway Museum is part of the Science Museum Group, the most significant group of museums of science and innovation worldwide. Each museum houses a variety of exciting and inspirational venues for hire, each with their own unique character.
