Established in 1979 by the Indian Railways, this is one of the earliest railway museums to be set up in India. The place has an amazing and informative collection of photographs and objects related to the development of the railways, with an outdoor display of locomotives.

I have never been to any event like this ever before and I regret it so much. This year I am doing corporate event planning team at my workplace and planning for events like this is really fun and equally tiring, I must say.
