Griffithstown Railway Museum is a small museum in Griffithstown, Torfaen, South Wales. It is housed in the old engine repair shed on Station Road, adjacent to the old Griffithstown railway station. The museum was opened in 2002.

This former Great Western Railway goods shed has been lovingly restored and now houses a fine collection of railway memorabilia and model railway. In the Museum you will find a cornucopia of railway treasures from local stations, including a complete station masters office.  The Museum is located in the village of Griffithstown which boasts a proud railway heritage.  It was named after Henry Griffiths (the first GWR station master at nearby Pontypool road) and was the birthplace of ASLEF (Associated Society of Locomotives Engineers and Firemen) in 1880.
