Visitors to the Railway Museum enter through the historic Maliebaan Station built in 1874. This station has been fully restored. There, you'll find a richly painted foyer with chandeliers, 1st, 2nd and 3rd-class waiting rooms, a luxurious dining room and even toilet facilities decorated in 19th century style. You'll feel like a passenger from that bygone era!

Royal waiting room

Purchase your admission ticket(s) at the nostalgic ticket windows. Be sure to check out the Royal waiting room, which was originally installed in Staatsspoor Station (an old station roughly where The Hague Central Station stands today) in 1892. And don’t forget to walk past the suitcases filled with stories!

In the Royal waiting room, ‘Travelling in Royal Style’ – a presentation on the Dutch royal family’s train travel – will begin. On the platform next to the station hall, you can admire the Royal coaches that belonged to Queen Juliana of the Netherlands (saloon coach 9) and Prince Bernhard, and to their daughters the princesses (saloon coach 8).
