We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this museum, We explored all the exhibits inside, and then looked all around the items outside. Getting close to an enormous snowplow is quite an experience. The highlight has to be the driving simulator where, for $2, you can...More

The building itself is interesting with a vaulted wood and glass roof. The history of the Canadian Pacific Railway is shown in photographs, detailed models, descriptions and videos. You can walk through a carriage and marvel at the size of a steam engine. Upstairs there...More

The train museum is a really good place to visit in Revelstoke. Lots of history about the Canadian railways, with lots of pictures and models. The old trains that you can walk through are also a wonder to see. Well worth a visit.

A great display and history of the CPR and Revelstoke. Couldn’t ski, so was nice to be somewhere warm and interesting for a few hours. Videos were informative, the model railway man was very knowledgeable and happy to share his interest.
