After the first Open Day


The first in 2022 Open Day in Engine Shed is over. On 7th May 235 guests decided to visit the Shed despite the end of the May’s “long weekend”.

We are happy that at last we could return to the formula from before 2020 and reintroduce guided tours and welcome back Atmosfera pizza parlor as the catering provider. As in the previous years, thanks to the cooperation with Łódź Metropolitan Railway (ŁKA), guests travelling by ŁKA could return from Skierniewice for free.

Thank you very much for visit and see you again during the 11th Railway Night of Museums on 14th May 2022.
