To mark the 20th Nuit des Musées, the Rambolitrain museum, located in Rambouillet in the Yvelines, is opening the doors to its toy train collection by night, this Saturday, May 18, 2024. Here's the program for the event.

It's an unusual museum to visit with the whole family, always a delight for young and old alike. The Rambolitrain museum in Rambouillet is taking part in Nuit des Musées 2024 ! On Saturday, May 18, you can visit this private museum, the result of a meeting between two miniature train enthusiasts, Jacques Visbecq, who owns a fabulous collection, and Alain Baldit, who is crazy about small trains...

This museum, the only one of its kind in France, boasts over 4,000 items, including toys in sheet metal and zamac, scale models in brass and bronze, and even three working electrical networks with a timer system you can set yourself. We're even told that moonlit rides and candlelit dinners are held on the train platforms, before the trains set off on their tours... !

While the little ones enjoy watching the toy trains set off, they are all the more impressed by the steam train installed in the garden. This beautiful machine allows amused little travelers to tour the garden in waggons, for €1.5 per person!
