Israel Railway Museum, Haifa

The Israel Railway Museum in Haifa tells the story of the railways of Israel, beginning in the days of the Ottoman Empire, the turbulent period of the First World War, the British Mandate, the Second World War and the birth of Israel and its subsequent development.

The Railways played a central role throughout and the Museum conveys this to the visitor with a wide variety of important stock, vehicles, locomotives, artefacts and archive material.

IRHC have produced a positive report which will act to guide the Museum through the future development its management team aspire to undertake.

Of considerable importance to a UK audience is the forthcoming restoration from completely wrecked condition of a London and South Western Railway Ambulance Coach shipped to Palestine in 1917.
