This little town has a train museum built in 1873, at the time of the Prince William I period. The museum has several rooms: an office room, a passenger waiting room, an old loco collection, and a garden. Ambarawa Railway Museum locates on the slope of Mount Telomoyo, and it is about a 2.5 hour's drive from Yogyakarta.
