The Flam Railway Museum is a free museum in Flam that explains just what went into the making of the Flam Railway line. I’d deliberately given myself a bit of time in Flam before I had to get the train back which I would recommend doing, if only to stretch your legs!
The museum has a lot of interesting artefacts that relate to the building of the railway. When the Bergen railway opened in 1907 horse-drawn carriages were used to get passengers up the ascent to Myrdal from Flam. The ascent was so steep that horses were only allowed to carry one passenger at a time.
Other displays include the tools that would have been used to build the railway line,
and of course some of the trains that would have used the line.
It’s an interesting look at the railway and I’d recommend a visit. Not to mention a walk through Flam itself – and the Aurlandsfjord which is really quite beautiful in its own right.
More of my photos from the museum can be found here, and those of Flam here.
