English National Railway Museum of Pietrarsa

The National Railway Museum of Pietrarsa (Italian: Museo Nazionale Ferroviario di Pietrarsa) lies beside the Naples–Portici railway, between the city of Naples and the towns of Portici and San Giorgio a Cremano. Pietrarsa is an area among these villages in the past known as “Pietra Bianca” (white stone) but it was renamed Pietrarsa (burnt stone) after the eruption of the Vesuvius in 1631.

The museum is housed in what was originally the old Bourbon workshop Officine di Pietrarsa, founded in 1840 at the command of Ferdinand II of Bourbon where steam machines for ships and boilers for locomotives were built. The workshop was organized in pavilions (where the collection is today displayed) which housed the various departments, each specializing in a different part of the production cycle.

French Musée national ferroviaire de Pietrarsa

Le Musée national ferroviaire de Pietrarsa se situe dans le quartier San Giorgio a Cremano à Naples dans une usine de fonderie qui appartenait au Roi de Naples. On y fabriqua des chaudières pour locomotives et on y construisit des bateaux à vapeur au XIXe siècle puis cette usine se reconvertit lors de l'unité de l'Italie en atelier de réparation pour chemins de fer. Le musée fut inauguré en 1989, ferma ses portes en 2006 pour être restauré et rouvrit en 2007. Après une deuxième restauration le musée est de nouveau ouvert au public depuis septembre 2011.
