I love this musem been taking my siblings to it since it opened i live in Shildon.Its free and it a great place for adults and children to learn about the history of our railways and see some great trains.Only one downside the childrens play area is a disgrace its dropping to bits and hasnt been maintained since it opened not a pretty site for me or my siblings or the visitors who visit,its dropping to bits and is not safe.

Locomotion at Shildon is a must see place for anyone who is interested in the railways. While not as big as the National Rail Museum, it has a large range of locomotives from Stephenson's Locomotion to more recent diesel and electric locomotives, as well as part of the Advanced Passenger Train, a power car from an Inter City 125, and the royal train used by Edward VII. Also there are interactive displays and games to keep children occupied.

The volunteers who give up their spare time are helpful and interesting to talk to. A volunteer showed me around an LMS steam locomotive and told me it needed nine tons of coal and 4000 gallons of water to operate, while another was happy to discuss his passion for the Advanced Passenger Train, the failed high speed train from the eighties that was cancelled on cost grounds.

Other reasons to visit Locomotion are the displays of various train sets through the ages, the shop which sells everything from keyrings to model trains, and the cafe, which is quite reasonably priced. While Soho House is still closed, you can visit the main part of the museum without pre booking, although you are expected to wear a face covering.

Locomotion is free to visit( there is a suggested donation of £ 5), has plenty of free parking in two car parks, and is next to Shildon railway station, with trains every hour to Bishop Auckland and Darlington.

This place is stunning. Excellent range of exhibits, wonderful setting. Run by staff who are passionate and knowledgable about the exhibits. I have wanted to visit for a long time, so glad I finally manage to get here!

We booked tickets online the day before for a Friday morning spot. It's about 50 minutes from Newcastle so never been before. My 22 month old loved running up and down the ramps and looking at the trains. I liked there was an indoor play area (it was too wet to use the outside one) plus a picnic area. We used the cafe, the cheese pasties were tasty (super hot so wait before biting into it) and plenty space between tables. We spoke to volunteers whilst in one of the trains who were friendly and knowledgeable. We spent about 3 hrs there which was perfect for us.

If you are hoping for a Kylie Minogue tribute you will be disappointed ;)

I visited by train and the Museum is right next to the railway line. Trains run hourly from Bishop Auckland to Saltburn via Darlington and Middlesbrough.

It is free to visit and you have to book at the moment. I booked prior to my visit and was sent a QR code which I needed to scan to sign in.

There are a number of railway exhibits to enjoy and there is a route to take around the museum.

There are things to touch and also a superb model railway display to check out.

I particularly enjoyed the stories of people within the railway community about what they did during the pandemic and how they coped.

They have an excellent gift shop and the cafe has seats from former Eurostars which are very comfortable.

Highly recommended!

This is a relatively small offshoot of the NRM but the exhibits are beautiful, well interpreted, and we spent a thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours exploring.

Used to be my favorite museum.
Now, however they are still riding the Covid Train- enforcing a booking system (why!? It used to be walk in!), still got silly walking routes in place with some walkways closed (engaging in the theory that passing another human is contagious). Signs up asking for masks, come on its time to move on! Choice is key.
I support the hand sanitizers but some were empty?
Further more we were kicked out at 3.30pm on a Sunday!? A weekend is surely where the most visits occur!?
This sort of experience totally spoils the visit, improvement needed.

A good selection of railway stock and equipment. Place is clean and tidy and very covid safe. Staff on reception were friendly and pointed us to where everything was located and how the covid secure 1 way system works. The museum is more of a engine shed with trains than a modern museum, it lacks atmosphere, perhaps some railway sounds played through the public address system would help. The only real disappointment was the coffee bar where you can stand for an age without being served, some other visitors got the reception staff to get the coffee bar staff to come out from the back to serve. The sandwiches and coffee were very good and priced reasonably for the type of location. I would have given a better score had the coffee bar been more attentive. I would have passed my comments on directly to the museum however they sent me an email requesting feedback without any contents.

Very disappointing visit, particularly after visiting the excellent Beamish museum. Yes it is free but the online booking seemed to involve an automatic "donation" of £5.

Steam engines have to be some of the most visually exciting machines ever built by man but there they all were on static display, cold and without even the ability to walk in the coaches!

I'm surprised by the generally good reviews for this museum and the fact that it is run by the Science Museum Group who you would think would be experts in exciting and interactive displays.

It is probably a dangerous principle to treat these , relatively modern, machines as priceless, untouchable exhibits.
