It is the largest railway museum in Turkey and contains one of the largest steam locomotive collections in Europe.  

It sits on the premises of the former Çamlık station, now disused because of a realignment of the Izmir Aydın main line.

During the Aegean maneuvers, Atatürk made his headquarters at this station in the White Personal Train and followed the maneuvers along the coast from here. 
The museum is located 7 km. from our hotel.
