Manx Electric Railway Museum

The Isle of Man has plenty of larger attractions to keep you and your family entertained during your visit. From the Heritage Steam Railway through to castles in Peel and Castletown there are plenty of "must see" locations.

Alternatively one of the smaller attractions and ideal if you would like to know more about the Manx Electric Railway, which runs between Laxey and Ramsey and operates the oldest tramcar in the world, is the Manx Electric Railway Museum. This returned as an attraction in 2015 and is open every Sunday with free admission.

Hidden inside the goods shed of the Derby Castle Car Sheds the museum contains a range of information boards about the beginning of the electric railway and its history, as well as items for you to look at and handle.

Once you have visited the museum why not take a trip on the electric railway up to Ramsey and visit some of the heritage sites and visitor locations in the North of the Island, or even visit the Sure Strike Tenpin Bowling Alley for a more modern bit of entertainment.

Further information can be found on the Manx Electric Railway website.
