This is a very small "boutique" size museum. It is a non profit and entry fee is only $5. It is directly across from the CN tower and aquarium, and is a nice little add on to do before or after the others. There is...More

I'm giving this very small but praiseworthy museum 4/5, however if you're not a rail/train geek like myself, I can see it being a 3/5 for you. The museum is located in a former roundhouse across the street from the CN Tower & Rogers Centre....More

I wish they would make it a little larger and more interactive. Nice to see the real trains outside, and nice to get to walk in a couple. But the inside of the 'museum' is really just a small room. My son liked it because...More
