Joshi’s Museum of Miniature Railway in Pune is a must-visit for train enthusiasts and kids at heart.

This unique museum showcases working models of various types of trains, complete with hills, rail tunnels, adventure parks, and even a circus!

Started by Bhausaheb Joshi, this miniature railway museum has a fascinating history that began with mobile working models and eventually led to a permanent exhibition in 1998.

Now owned by Bhausaheb’s son, Dr. Ravi Joshi, the museum is a true labor of love.

Although the models are mostly functional, be prepared for some laughs as the operator may need to physically push some of the vehicles. And don’t be surprised if the narration sounds a bit outdated – it’s all part of the charm.

The museum charges Rs. 120 per person and requires visitors to remove their footwear before entering the small room where the magic happens.

Wait time for the shows can be around 15 minutes, but there are plenty of nearby options for food and parking.

So, all aboard for a small world in one small room at Joshi’s Museum of Miniature Railway – do not forget to bring kids !
