Wonderful - a must see visit for anyone passing through. Quite unique for a museum in that you can climb above the exhibits and look down on them. This is a fantastic tribute to all who have worked so hard to establish this museum.

This is an extraordinary work prepared by volunteers in the small town of Revelstoke. The scope and presentation of the material is immaculate and the explanatory information clearly, but concisely presented.

This is a modestly priced museum that takes you through the interesting history of rail in Canada, The history and stories here are interesting and the equip on display makes it intimate and captivating. The simulator is a big hit with the kids. Definitely worth a couple hours of our time.

The displays take you from the building of the CPR until modern diesel engines. The personal stories are captivating and the history is easy to read and imagine. Standing beside the steam engine and looking into the engineers seat is impressive. The simulator to drive a steam engine is awesome. You can choose your destination and speed, blow the horn...

For those that want to burn time and walk about something interesting while chatting, wonderful. Its not too expensive, but neither is it something that will leave you breathless. Just be sure to know that if you want to go, it is a museum, not a amusement park.

We really enjoyed this place. It costs $10 for adults, but was worth the price. We learned a lot about the history of the Canadian railway system. It was like walking back in time to step into the old dining car! They even had the old menus to read.

Yay! This was a great museum. You have to cross the tracks to get to it, and it's right by the station, so if you get caught with a train going by, you might be stuck for a while.. But if you're going to a railway museum, you probably expected trains! You'll also have one or two pass while you're... More

Even thou this museum has a Trip Advisory Award, it lacks info on the tunnels thru the mountains and CP routes. Their is little info on cargo. A visit to the Parks Canada Discovery Centre atop Rogers Pass rounded some of that out. It was a good experience overall; we just wanted more. Meeting the retired Conductor and Engineer was... More

We visited Juneau on Celebrity cruise line in August. We lucked out on the weather with a beautiful sunny day. We did not book the shore excursion on board because there was no point if the weather was foggy or cloudy and it was aver $10.00 cheaper purchasing a ticket at the tram site booth. The view was incredible. When... More
