Lots of exhibits and panels giving more info. Real steam locomotives can be seen in action some times.
This is a gem for kids and their parents. You can take various train rides, especially in the summer, and go inside trains and locomotives. Simply great!
Visit on a Saturday morning when it is pay as you wish. Maybe we were expecting more from all the hyped up reviews but the train museum is actually pretty small. There are 10-12 trains in the hanger-like museums and a small train model room. There is also a actual train shuttle running which was swamped with kids on the... More
I visited the museum a few weeks ago. There are trains from all different eras and guided tours are available. The guide we had was very knowledgeable. You could also go outside and ride a Tramway or train and the driver would give you information about these vehicles and eras as well. My only problem is that I find it... More
Unless you are into trains, don't bother. Even for kids.. The only attraction we liked in this place was the mini train, but that is nothing but an extended version of the train in the malls and arcades where even adults can sit. Other than that, they have a movie about trains.. nothing but a movie of all the places... More
In addition to the trains and street cars, lots of pieces of history, like the school car that made a circuit, educating children and adults in the farm country, and the locomotive that pulled the King's train. Much more than you can see in a day. Stay away from the Greek restaurant across the street. Food's okay. People are hostile.
We went as a family. Lots of parking and a huge museum to enjoy! We found the child friendly areas of amusement were just enough to keep the kids entertained as the place is huge... So there is lots at which to look and enjoy, with space for the kids to have some excercise. The train ride around the locale... More
We've been 3 times to Exporail and it's always been a fun time. The museum is a combination of inside and outside exhibits. There are lots of trains, historical information on trains, as well as a mini train ride and a trolley ride around the grounds. My favourite is the rural school train. My son's favourite are the rides of... More
We took our almost 5yo little guy to the train museum on our way out of Montreal. We really wanted to hit the Botanical Gardens, but read some unfavorable reviews and decided in the end, that with the time available to us and almost the same price it was better to just try out the train museum instead. I'm so... More
My wife and I aren't particularly interested in trains, and this visit was solely for the benefit of our 4 year old boy who is train crazy. However, you can't fail to be completely interested in this place. The train collection is fantastic, as are the explanations that delve into Canadian history well beyond just the engines. It was in... More
