Electrical Railway Museum

Established in 2005, the Electric Railways Museum is located inside the Piraeus metro station and houses over 2,000 exhibits and 3,000 books, all covering the history of the electric railway in Greece.

The museum was created after railway employees began gathering old uniforms, photographs, books, and newspaper articles about the railway dating from 1869. The owner of the company then added to the collection by donating old train cars, auxiliary carriages, iron rails and railway traffic control equipment – and a museum was born!
