Cooma Monaro Railway Museum

Featuring the ‘Travel for Pleasure’ exhibit.

Housed in the beautifully restored Cooma Railway Station building, the Cooma Monaro Railway Museum tells the story of the golden age of railways in NSW. Take a wander through our ‘Travel for Pleasure’ exhibition, explore one of the last remaining, complete railway precincts in NSW and view some of our beautifully restored rolling stock.
