Museum of transport in Rajecké Teplice

in detail

In 2009, during the 110th anniversary of the railway track Žilina – Rajec, the idea was born to build a Museum of Transport in the building of the Rajecké Teplice railway station. The building was used for several years, but it was refurbished and the station hall is the ideal space for the installation of traffic exhibits. Since 2010, we tried to find resources for the adaptation of the space for the museum exhibition. They managed to get through in 2013 with the support of the Ministry of Culture. Museum is open from April 2014. 

Visitors can see a real track, a majestic railway handcar, the techniques used to train in the past and displays of a historical transport office. Kids will be able to play with the historical model trackage. This is complemented by two-dimensional imagery, which assists the visitor to learn everything about traffic development in Slovakia. However, we do not want to forget our regional specificities as many of the displayed objects come from the local station Zilina - Rajec.  Every year  in October, during the anniversary of the railway Žilina - Rajec, runs on this track the historical train Hurvínek.
