Hidden safely two levels underground, in the Stroupežnického street in Smichov is Prague’s very own miniature Railway kingdom. When I first visited, I did’t think it would be interesting. But the hundreds of meters of tiny tracks displaying most parts of Czech Republic including Prague, Central Bohemia, Pilsen, Karlovy Vary and more, definitely did prove me wrong!
The trains and coaches can be operated digitally with just a small switch. You can see the entire Bohemian region come alive as the train passes through little farms, tunnels and fields. You can easily spend about 2 hours enjoying these trains and finally get to the Thomas Train exhibit which is right at the bottom level. Kids can also try driving an almost real engine complete with controls.
At the bottom level there is a large room which can be used for birthday celebrations, and a nice cosy kids’ corner. The museum does not have a facility to provide cake or food for parties, but hot and cold beverages can be arranged if booked in advance.
