This place is great if you are interested in historic trains and subways. They have a functioning historic train, as well as old subway cars, etc. The train runs on one of the historic streetcar tracks that used to run from Toronto to the various outer towns

I went on a Sunday morning around 11am when it opened, with my 3 year old nephew, sister and husband. We were immediately greeted by staff, who were also the train conductors. We were given an overview of the museum and an inside tour of the historic railroad station. It was quite interesting. Then came the fun part, the street... More

The Halton County Radial Railway museum is an amazing collection of old trains, trolleys & trams. Great fun for all ages. Unlimited rides are available with your entry fee. You can also climb on and walk through a large number of rail based equipment.

Rail museums are, by definition, for train buffs. As a volunteer driven, donation funded, museum its in a permanent state of delicate decay and gradual rebuilding; which can be viewed as annoying and inconvenient when things are blocked off, or viewed as part of the essence of a live railway where things are not just on display. In that sense... More

The Halton County Radial Railway Museum is pleasant, but minor, attraction, best suited for families with young children who might have a train fixation. Admittedly, that is probably a large proportion of young families. The highlight, and one might say the 'raison d'etre', of the museum is a leisurely streetcar ride through an Ontario forest to the 'east loop', at... More

A great family outing with barns of historical streetcars and the opportunity to ride streetcars from yesterday. Picnic grounds available and fun for any children or adults interested in trains.

Had a great time last night. Kids loved it. Staff is amazing, answered all questions about the equipment. They have done a great job preserving and keeping so much of it in running condition. The haunted barn at the end of the line spooked our little one but didn't frighten her. She loved the ride on the streetcar and the... More

We had a great time there. U need about 2-3 hrs there depending on your child and how ling they wanto ride for. There are 3 trains to ride on. As well pack your own food because they only have ice cream and a snack bar with chips and pop.

I love trains. We had a blast riding the rails. We went on every ride we could. We also stepped onto every train.- some more than once - on display. It is nice how they are preserving history by breathing life into old, retired streetcars. Some of the cars you will likely remember seeing on the streets of Toronto. I... More
