Invitation to the 16th season in the Engine Shed


As in previous year, we publish in advance the schedule of the events planned for 2020. It is a particular year when we will be celebrating three different anniversaries:

  • 15 years of opening the Shed to the public during the series of open days,
  • 100th anniversary of Hungarian help which arrived in Skierniewice to supply with arms the Polish army fighting in Polish-Soviet War of 1920
  • 175th anniversary of opening of the Warsaw-Vienna Railway.

Due to this fact we introduce a couple of changes to our schedule:

  • During the monthly Open Days, starting on 2nd May the Shed will be open to the public till 6 PM, with last guided tour starting at 2 PM.
  • We maintain two lengths of the guided tours. Tours starting at 11 AM, 12 PM, 1 PM are shorter, directed to the families with children. The last tour at 2 PM covers the whole sightseeing route along our collection and exhibitions.
  • The Railway Night of Museums is planned on 16th May (may change depending on the schedule of other institutions in Skierniewice) from 6 PM till midnight.
  • We reintroduce a special open day for schools in form of the weekly School Thursdays. School groups are welcome after earlier arrangement (phone contact 730 181 323) throughout the whole school year.
  • We extend the opening hours during the Festival of Flowers, Fruits and Vegetables – the Shed will be open to the public from 11 AM to 7 PM.
  • We keep the Photo Days in the schedule on the selected third Saturdays of the month. On two terms (20th June, 17th October) the Shed will be open to the enthusiasts of photography from 11 AM to 5 PM and on 15th August from 5 PM to 9 PM. Participants register at the entrance for the first half our from the beginning of the event.
  • On 3rd October we plan a special Open Day, the Birthday of WVR on the 175th anniversary of the Warsaw-Vienna Railway.
  • The open day during the Railwaymen Day (28th November) will be shortened to two touring groups at 11 AM and 12 PM.
