This was a nice museum with old cars to look at and even climb into . There was a retired engineer sitting in a diesel engine who provided a wealth of information. The displays were very informative and someone had created a model of the valley with a train set.

Thought this would be a great little place to take my 5 year old. While he did enjoy it there wasn't really enough to do for any of my kids. It was $19 for us to get in (1 adult, 3 kids) and we were done in 45mins. They have a model railroad but there wasn't any trains running on... More

We were only passing through and found out about this museum on the spot, so by the time we got there, it was less than an hour before closing time, but we could get in at half price for the remaining time. Did everything in a jiffy, and probably could have seen more if we had known before, but still... More

Went with my wife and 21 month old daughter who loves trains. It was awesome. Full of history. I really enjoyed the large steam engine inside.

Lots to see and lots of history. Don't forget to look at the exhibits outside. It is very reasonably priced too and not crowded with people.

This museum has a good combination of real railway equipment, including a huge steam locomotive with a live engineer, and a historical perspective of how the creation of a trans Canada railway (with last spike only 30 km away) was instrumental in BC becoming a province. Revelstoke is near to the most challenging part of the crossing, with avalanches in... More

Nothing to dislike, so many old trains and stories to enjoy. There was even an ex driver on one of the trains for his memories.

Not a large museum, but many interesting artifacts to see and stories to hear. Only took an hour or so, and was a nice way to break up the trip.

This is a self guided tour. Lots of great pictures and history. The engineer was in, so we had a chance to speak with him about his history with the railroad.
