Not a large museum, but many interesting artifacts to see and stories to hear. Only took an hour or so, and was a nice way to break up the trip.

This is a self guided tour. Lots of great pictures and history. The engineer was in, so we had a chance to speak with him about his history with the railroad.

It's only open during daytime business hours so if you come around dinnertime, you will be out of luck. Lots of good information about the importance of trains in regards to developing this country.

The museum is small and the displays are o.k., but being a member of a railroad engineer's family, we were very disappointed in the state of the engines, cars etc in the outdoor yard. They look like they've just been left their to ."die". While we know $$$ is always a problem, surely something could be done to care for... More

My boyfriend is a big CP Rail enthusiast so this was right up his alley. We spent an hour and half enjoying the rail cars, history and artefacts. A great time for $10!

My grandfather was a steam engine engineer so I grew up around trains. The gorgeous steam train inside the museum took me back to my younger years which was awesome. I was surprised to find a picture of my grandfather's train on display in the museum, considering he worked on it in Ontario, so that made my trip even better!... More

We stopped in Revelstoke to break up the drive from Banff to Kelowna and the town itself is a little bit sad. We were pleasantly surprise, therefore, when we decided to visit the railway museum which is excellent. There are some huge steam trains inside and outside the museum which you can go inside and explore. There was also an... More

Great steam engine displays and informative historical movies which made me appreciate what our forefathers had to do to build and maintain the railways. We had a wonderful chat with one of the former engineers who answered all questions with tons of information and more A well set up children's section
