Transport in the Skanzen
The railwaymen and the conductors working on the railroad wear period costumes from the 1930’s. The train goes around the museum from the entrance; the complete journey takes about 30 minutes. Our normal-gauge railway is the longest among the museum railways in Europe. It has five handicapable stops which provide easy access for people with wheelchairs, or for families with baby carriage. The Skanzen train operates between the Railway Station and the Study Collection. Waiting time varies (20 -30 minutes), depending on the number of passengers.
Please take notice of following:
- the train operates on several days a week only (see the schedule)
- keep away from the tracks
- departure times may change depending on the number of the passengers
- either 3 prams or 2 wheelchairs fit in the train
- passengers are requested to get down at both railheads
