Take a virtual tour of Rail Museum

Take a virtual tour of Rail Museum

September 3, 2020

Mysore/Mysuru: Mysuru Division of South Western Railway (SWR) has joined the bandwagon to enable potential tourists and rail aficionados to explore the exhibits online.

The virtual tour of the Mysuru Rail Museum, commissioned yesterday, provides an interactive experience of the facility with voice-over that provides the visitor a detailed walk through  the exhibits.

Dedicated by Pratap Simha, Mysuru-Kodagu MP, the tour enables one to discover the slew of exhibits at the Museum, which was renovated and inaugurated early this year. Visitors can enjoy a 360-degree view of the Museum on the virtual tour. 

Simha said that the Museum would soon be counted among one of the leading tourist destinations in the city, along with Mysore Palace and Sri Chamundeshwari Temple atop the Hill. 

Simha was effusive in his praise of SWR, Mysuru Division, for taking the initiative to come up with projects that will turn the Museum into a prominent tourist destination. 

Though the Museum reopened in June, tourist footfall is low as the travel industry is yet to regain traction due to surge in COVID-19 cases. 

Hence, the authorities thought it fit to commission the virtual tour facility on its website https://mysururailmuseum.com.
