Railway Museum


Established in 1971 to preserve and display the steam locomotives and rolling stock of the then East African Railways, the museum has an eclectic collection of memorabilia from the history of the Uganda railway, from its infamous beginnings, when numerous workers perished at the jaws of the man-eating lions of Tsavo, to the present. It’s filled with fascinating historical photographs and relics from old trains, as well as actual trains you can climb onto. One of them is the carriage in which Charles Ryall was dozing in 1900 when a lion seized him through the window, broke his neck and carried him off.
