What an interesting and cool museum. It was so neat to see the old equipment and pictures. It gave us a glimpse of the hard work put into the railways and the sacrifices these men made. Definitely going back again in a few years. A special thanks to our tour guide!!!

Was not sure what to expect, but it was great. Local and rail history that took us by surprise, spent two hours walking around taking it all in.

I took my 5 Year old grandson to the Museum on one of our events in BC. The history of the Railways in BC, the Chinese Exhibition and the great exhibits were well worth the admission and our time there.

A good demonstration and illustration of the trans-continental railway's history. After the visit, I learn so much and it inspired me how the Canadian overcame all the difficulties throughout this mega infrastructure. As we traveled in the Rockies Mountains later, we can still see the cargo train along the way. This railway is still serving the country and you can... More

The Museum is open all year with ample parking. Its location adjacent to the CP Railway tracks adds to the authenticity to the museum. The open yard at the south end of the Museum has an array of service equipment including snow plows, a Diesel Locomotive, service cars and caboose. There are picnic tables in this park-like setting. The building... More

Very good place to bring the children to see the amazing displays and all the old equipment outside. We visited with a visitor from... More
