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!

A wonderful museum, full of amazing history. I strongly suggest a visit to this museum, best to check the opening times prior to your visit.

Interesting exhibits detailing the history of rail in Canada. Great set up and very friendly people. They have an engineer ready to answer your questions and the train simulator is entertaining.

You can look into a huge engine inside the museum, there are also other engines, model trains etc. Also, outdoor exhibition is worth visiting (so a sunny day is good for a visit). Worth visiting for anyone even remotely interested in transportation and technology!

Loved being able to talk to an original steam train engineer on board the engine on display. Lots of rolling stock outside including snow plows. Very interesting displays with good information to read as you go around. Allow 1-2 hours here.

Enjoyed walking through the old trains and talking with the conductor to learn how they operated years ago. Outside are more trains that you can walk through as well as a park area. The gift shop was nice and the staff were quite friendly.
