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.

We knew very little about the hardships of working on the railway here and this museum was brilliant at showing so much of the heritage plus the actual trains, carriages etc made me become a bit of a Canadian train annorak.

This is a great railway museum, it has some rolling stock, but the center attraction is the large steam train located inside. In fact, the entire musuem is kind of built around this engine. Often, there is an ex-engineer sitting in the cab of the train, willing to answer your questions about the train or running the rails on the... More

This is a very nice, clean, well laid out museum. There are some beautiful engines and rolling stock to be seen. Of particular interest was the Pullman car you could walk through, and really get a feel for what it would have been like to dine and sleep on one of these great old cars. The highlight was the huge... More

Very well done museum. Great coverage of the trials of building a railway across the mountains. Loved the scale models depicting the railway over the gorge. Amazingly detailed. The large locomotive was one highlight and was made even better by having a former driver there to answer questions. The rolling stock was great to wander around - always amazed at... More

A great place for a railway nut. Some very good exhibits with plenty of history lessons thrown in. Loved the old "Mikado" engine and the gentleman there to answer questions.
