A Visit to National Rail Museum
Visits are always beautiful and fill a person’s mind with joy and enthusiasm. If the visit is educational and learning based, it provides us invaluable knowledge as well. New Era Public School, Dwarka arranged for the students of classes LKG to II to visit the famous National Rail Museum.
The museum building was robust and majestic. The museum had various departments that had collectibles and artefacts on different subjects and historical periods on display. Children saw numerous images, articles, sculptures, and scriptures– palm leaf and rock engravings and many other articles of great value and interest as they entered the museum.
The National Rail Museum is worth a visit for those who love locomotives especially the ones with the coal burners and the steam hissing out and using all its might to push the wheels out of its state of inertia. The museum houses many of the old locomotives which is indeed a rare sight to see and a pleasure for a person with an interest in history or antiques.
The museum is spread across 11 acres of land including indoor and outdoor exhibits. Children had a ride on toy train that took them around its sites, and the kids loved it…. The museum also houses the world’s oldest operational steam locomotive, the Fairy Queen, built in 1855, which was certified by the Guinness Book of World Records.
Children spent time with their friends in a positive way and the environment provided a shared learning experience which was certainly a memorable and knowledgeable.
