Tours at the Israel Railways Museum, which is located in the stone buildings of the historic Haifa East train station – the point of departure of the legendary Jezreel Valley Train. The tours will recount the history of railway transportation in the Land of Israel, starting with the dedication of the first line between Jaffa and Jerusalem in 1892 and up to the accelerated development of Israel Railways that is now underway. Tour participants will be shown a variety of antique steam engines and railroad cars stored at the Museum and will also become familiar with basic concepts relating to railway transportation. 45-minute guided tours will start every hour on the hour.
It is advisable to directly access the Museum using the Museum Train, which leaves from the Haifa Center – HaShmona station every 40 minutes. Timetable information can be found on the Israel Railways website.
