The Nationaal Modelspoor Museum (in Eng, the National Model Railway Museum) in Sneek, located in the province of Friesland in the Netherlands, is a beautiful model railway museum.
The museum is housed in the station building of Sneek, which I think is a very suitable location. Right next to the building is still a historic Kleindiesellokomotive (Locomotor) NS 323 "Sik van Snits".
The museum is very child friendly, as it also invites to play. Every system has buttons that are just waiting to be pushed. By pressing the buttons, the visitor can drive the trains themselves and thus gets the trains rolling.
On the second floor the visitor will find more copies as well as some lovingly made dioramas.
Opening hours: Tuesday to Saturday 10:00 to 17:00. On Sunday from 12.00-17.00 clock. Telephone: 0515-430021. In July and August also on Monday from 12.00-17.00 clock.
