In January and February 2023 the museum will be closed for operational reasons.
In 2022, our museum was greatly helped with the financial grant of the Moravian-Silesian Region, which was aimed to cover operating costs within a project called "OPERATION AND SERVICES OF THE MORAVIAN-SILESIAN RAILWAY MUSEUM IN 2022". This grant was very important due the fact that the museum was gradually burdened by the raising prices of electricity and thermal energy during the year. There were also unplanned increases in the prices of materials and services during the year. That's why we thankfully accepted this contribution, thanks to which we were able to financially cover, in addition to the operation costs, an open new exhibition to mark the 150th anniversary of the Line of the Moravian-Silesian Central Railway, Olomouc - Krnov - Opava.
The grant thus fulfilled its purpose.
Within the scope of project called: "Increasing the attractiveness of the Railway Museum" we received financial grant from the Moravian - Silesian region. Thanks to this financial grant we invested in artifacts additions and model railways. Those funds have been used to create digital ticket sales and repair the steam locomotive 310.001. We were also able to organize the event called "FINE SUMMER - DAY WITH SLOVAK BULLET TRAIN", which was really interesting for our visitors. We very much appreciate support of the Moravian-Silesian region.
Those who visited on Saturday 20.8. 2022 railway station Ostrava střed and the event “FAJNE LÉTO 2022” in the Moravian-Silesian Railway Museum really did not get bored. Entertainment mainly for children, as well as interesting things to see together with the technical unique - the Slovak Bullet Train, attracted many visitors. Photos of these satisfied visitors are available to view at the website gallery on the section of Fajne léto. Small afternoon showers did not deter hundreds of visitors, who patiently watched the departure of Slovak Bullet Train a to its home depot in Kopřivnice even after 6 p.m. We rate this year's event as the best and as the highlight of all "Fajne léto" days organized so far in our museum.
Dear visitors and supporters of the Moravian - Silesian Railway Museum we are announcing a new exhibition: MORAVIAN - SILESIAN CENTRAL RAILWAY, Olomouc - Krnov - Opava.
A new exhibition describing the history of the Olomouc - Krnov - Opava line has been open since Saturday 30.4.2022. This line leads through the valley of the river Bystřice through the town of Bruntál to Krnov - to the then imperial border. It was ceremoniously opened for freight transport on October 1, 1872. Passenger transport on this line was launched on October 15, 1872. The line from Krnov to Opava (today's Opava West) did not start operating until November 1, 1872.
Visitors can read about the history of the construction of the line and its beginnings of operation at the exhibition areas of the new exposition.
