The narrow-gauge railway museum at Tsepinaveche railway station, closed many years ago, is now open to visitors. Inside the building of what was once a railway station tourists can catch a glimpse of the past and the present of the only functioning narrow-gauge railway track in the country, the Septemvri-Dobrinishte line.

“Tourists from all over the world come here every year to take the train,” says Kristian Vaklinov, chairman of the narrow-gauge railway association which runs the museum.

This picturesque spot attracts visitors also with the sheer Sokolska cliff, the green gorge as well as the authentic 1920s museum building. The museum’s collection features hundreds of photographs, documents and exhibits. On the first floor there is a small and a large waiting room, as well as an office. There is also an original cupboard displaying the train tickets that were once used.
