Museum of the Great Western Railway is housed in a beautifully restored Grade II railway building in the heart of the former Swindon railway works. The Museum tells the story of the men and women who built, operated and travelled on the Great Western Railway - 'God’s Wonderful Railway' - a railway network that, through the pioneering vision and genius of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, was regarded as the most advanced in the world. The story is brought to life with rare archive film footage, stories of ex-railway workers, hands-on exhibits, interactive displays, famous locomotives and GWR memorabilia. The museum is peopled by character figures life-cast from Swindon people - many of them former railway workers.Website
