“History that is NOT boring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

They have done a remarkable job with the Railway Museum. Real cars to walk through, fantastic pictures of amazing mountain construction, lots of variety. If you have time in Revelstoke we would highly recommend you take an hour or two to see this museum.

“Lots of cool stuff to see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

A rainy day in Revelstoke and I head over to the railway museum. Not to many people taking advantage of this great place. The fact that they have a full steam locomotive inside the building was very impressive. A must see for families

“Exciting for railfans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Very interesting exhibitions of trains from the old days. Special to learn about the struggles to keep the railway opened in snowy winters in earlier days.

“For All History Buffs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

The exhibts are very well done, especially the very well restored railcar and steam engine housed inside. The history is fascinating. The model train exhibut was not yet open, but looks like it will be fun. The stories and history displayed are well presented and makes the history of CP Rail really come to life.
