The museum began its work on November, 4, 2001. It was the 140th anniversary of Lviv raiway. Its exposition presents materials about the railway birth and its construction in Galicia, Volyn, Carpathians and further to the south, to Chernivtsi city, in the times of Austro-Hungary, Poland, USSR and nowadays.
The visitors can see the unique regulatory documents, photoes, models, devices, instruments and railway unifoms of different periods. The album "The Construction of raiway Volodymyr-Volynsky — Sokal" (1916) is considered to be the museum's pride. The three-lingual tickets of 1918-1921; the calculating machine "Koptomir", having been in use till 1939, are of great interest too.
The museum is going to celebrate Lviv railway 150th anniversary and at the same time its own tenth anniversary in autumn, 2011.
