The Rail Museum, Mysore is the 2nd of such kind in India. Later almost  in every major city, they started them. However, Rail museum in Hyderabad has nothing much to offer. So we decided to visit this when we were left with few hours before train and almost finished every possible place in Mysore, we decided to visit this place.

The exhibits of railcar and Maharani’s carriage were the most interesting things which lured me.

It was a busy Monday morning. As it turns out, we were the only visitors and the place looked neglected by tourists. We were received gladly and were allowed to do whatever we wanted with the exhibits. As usual we played like kids and clicked lot of pictures.

Bus car, it has only one coach with seats.. Driver and conductor will be there. You can ask the driver to stop wherever you want. Heard these are still running in some parts of Andhra Pradesh.

Maharani's couch..It has a kitchen with attached bathroom, writing table, wardrobe and dressing table; a maid's room and kitchen. Sad they did not allow anyone inside.

There is also a small children play area in the museum. No canteen or anything related to food. Kids will love this place. (I can assure you as I am one and I am living with one).
