The main attraction of Rewari is the Rewari Heritage Steam Locomotive Museum. The shed housing the museum was built in 1893 and is the only one in India hosting a few steam engines that have survived the wear and tear of their strenuous journeys. It remained in a state of neglect after steam engines were removed from active service by 1990. The shed was, however, reclaimed by the railway authorities to host a heritage museum for steam engines in December, 2002.
Rewari has a dry, semi-arid climate. It experiences three distinct seasons: summer, winters and monsoon.
Rewari is well connected to all the major cities in India by air, rail and road. It also is a major railway junction.
