Ravenglass Railway Museum

Ravenglass Railway Museum


Ravenglass Railway Museum tells the story of the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, affectionately known as the ‘Ratty’. Located at Ravenglass station on the Cumbrian coast, the museum re-opened in 2017 after a comprehensive Heritage Lottery funded re-development and houses a collection of artefacts ranging from steam locomotives and carriages right down to tickets, uniforms and models. Through exciting displays and hands-on interactive features, visitors can experience 150 years of the R&ER as well as the origins of the historic Roman port of Ravenglass and iron-ore mining in Eskdale. Some of our locomotive collection can be found operating at Ravenglass in the summer months (please call for availability) as well as visiting other narrow-gauge railways and museums.
Our archive space is available for research by appointment and can be hired as a meeting/conference venue.
