Reading about the start of the Canadian railway system was fascinating and walking through the old cars was like stepping back in time.

Didn't know what to expect from this train museum and was pleasantly surprised. Exhibits are very well done and the entire museum was well kept. Was a real treat to walk through the train yard and learn about the history of the railway in the rockies. The highlight of the visit was the train simulator. A must for any railway... More

It's good, showing the history of how the railroad was built and the difficulties the builders had quite amazing when you see the conditions under which they worked and the appalling weather that they endured. Certainly worth a visit

This is on my list to stop at and take a break while driving through. It a great place to get the kids out of the car and take a 30 minute brake.

Not a lot of exciting things to hold our young kids attention for long but overall lots of fun and if you have the time lots to learn.

This sight may be small but it holds a good punch. So nice to see many exhibits on the rails going through BC. They also had a train simulator for the kids and a very informative video on the men who worked the rails. A definite place for kids and kids at heart.

I was just at the museum in May. My Mom's father and brother both worked on the railway. My grandfather died in an historic train accident in the 1930's. They have a donation memory board at the museum and we have made several donation in memory of family members who have since passed on. They have wonderful displays and it... More

This museum has an nice balance between learning and hands-on. The yard outside with different cars is nice, one can enter a caboose and experience how it must have been decades ago. Inside there is a train simulation... one just needs a twoonie to get it going...

I can't believe how much they charge ($10 per adult) for this museum! Small, boring and mainly consisting of posters on the wall to read. That and model trains that no one is allowed to touch. Not interactive at all, and I wish we had saved our money and taken our kids on a real train ride just south of... More
