Local History! Canadian history!

We had a blast! Was so much fun to see all the different wagons and equipments related to train. It is a real Canadian history out of the books!

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.

Got to visit if you are in Revy even if you are not a Train fan. We were there 9:30am on Sunday morning..spend a good couple of hours and actually learnt quiet a lot about the history of CP Rail. Check out the theatre and the simulator!

This was actually a lovely little visit for our family. Our 4 year old loved to explore the trains. There was also a lot of good information about the railroads from this area. If you like trains and history this is a great place to go.

The museum is well laid out and there are things to keep kids occupied. Don't miss the little film about the train and tracks between Revelstoke and Golden, BC. Amazing number of people worked on that section! Walking the lines everyday etc. Great jobs for loners!
