The museum is a good size for a small town. Nice attention to keeping the exhibits relevant to local history. The model railroad in the main building was pretty neat too.

This little museum is packed with information about the area. The history of Valemount is tied to the railway so the focus is on that. There are model trains in the basement that are running around the room. Worth the visit

There's a lot to see at this museum, the lovingly and beautifully restored train station and living quarters, miniature trains that run through the walls, full caboose car to climb into and many other exhibits. We found reading about the railway to be very interesting....More

We took our children on a train adventure to Valemount and gone are the days of grand train stations replaced by flag stops with nothing more than a Via sign. A little disappointed that the Valemount train museum was closed during our visit, but we...More
