Visit to Pietrarsa Railway Museum - Museo Nazionale Ferroviario di Pietrarsa

One of our favourite visits was to Pietrarsa Railway Museum, founded in 1840 at the command of Ferdinand II of Bourbon where steam machines for ships and boilers for locomotives were built. The workshop was organized in pavilions (where the collection is today displayed) which housed the various departments, each specializing in a different part of the production cycle.
Our students had the chance to see and sometimes even cross the inside of most of the carriages and they also enjoyed an interactive video which made the visit a fun and interesting experience.
