Being a engineer operating trains out of Revelstoke years ago in my youth, I was interested in the old pictures kept in the archives. I was looking at old steam engine pictures and came across the train wrecks section and low and behold here were two pictures showing a train wreck that I was involved in many years ago. The...

My friends and I learned a lot about the history of the railway. We enjoyed admiring all of the displays. Additionally, we were even lucky enough to see a bear in the trees.

Even if you have only an hour, a visit to this museum will inform you about the trials encountered in building and maintaining a rail line through the Rogers Pass. It is nicely laid out with good graphics, explanations, photos, models, and artifacts. You can visit a luxury (but unrestored) carriage that is inside, walk around a steam engine, and... More

I was surprisingly intrigued with everything the museum had to offer inside and outside the building. Worth the $10 entry fee. Ironically got stuck in the parking lot... by a passing train :)

Enjoyed the Revelstoke Railway Museum, great display with photo's and artefacts from the period. The trains were amazing to walk around and remember times gone by. Reading the stories about the different people that came from all over the world to build the railroad and their stories. Enjoyed seeing the old train cars outside, and especially seeing the cargo trains... More

I must admit that wevisited because it was dropping down with rain and I wasn't expecting much. How wrong I was. I'm not a train buff but I found it fascinating especially the history of the building of the track through The Rockiesi. It's well laid out and is good for the young too with a simulator which the children... More

Didn't expect much when I pay for the tickets, but was moved when I really got inside. Lots of information and several real trains to get on to see and feel and touch the history. Also a space for kids , and I believe most kids could spend half an hour at the little room to let parents who bring... More

Our two year old thought this was pretty exciting. It's small but the fact that he could go into some of the trains helped keep it entertaining for him.
