'All aboard' this summer as Perth Museum and Art Gallery explore the history of Perth and Kinross' railways.

The development of railways in the mid-19th century had a huge impact on people’s lives, both in work and leisure. With their arrival, travel and tourism boomed and Perth became the gateway for onward travel to scenic Perthshire towns and the Highlands.

Although some railway lines have since closed, many of these lost lines have found a new role for walkers, cyclists and those interested in exploring Scotland’s railway heritage.

This family-friendly exhibition explores the heyday of rail travel and features original objects together with photographs and videos exploring the story of an important period in the history of transport.
