La Cite Du Train
Address: 2, rue Alfred de Glehn, 68200 Mulhouse, France. Tel.: 03 89 42 83 33 Toll Free:
France's world-class national railway collection is displayed in this impressive museum in Mulhouse, once a European centre of steam locomotive construction. Mulhouse is in the north-eastern French region of Alsace, near the German and Swiss borders. The large collection includes steam, diesel and electric locomotives, and powered and hauled rolling stock. The museum has recently reopened after the construction of a new thematic exhibition space, which has caused some controversy for its dramatic display style. All labels are in French, but English-speaking visitors can borrow digital audio players containing English-language spoken descriptions of most exhibits..
