Very clean. Extremely informative without being boring. Exhibits are very well done. You can gain access to some of the train cars. There was a black and white movie I believe called The Railroaders which was very interesting. A little hard to hear so sit close. There are 2 levels to the museum plus an outside area where you can... More

What an interesting museum with a great historical collection to see, read, climb into and touch! My husband and I were there for a good 2 hours, could have stayed longer too. Excellent for all ages!

Well laid out exhibits with decommissioned trains and plenty of history. I enjoyed this more than I thought I might and spent a little over an hour reading thru the material and watching the films. Quite an interesting assortment of history an old photos to really give a feeling of the hardships endured by the early railway workers. Well worth... More

I'm not really into trains but I called in here to kill an hour and was surprised by the amount information on display and the number of trains and carriages, I learned a lot about the trans Canada railway. It was a very informative museum with friendly staff. It was nice to be able to climb into the trains and... More

We only intended to to 'kill' a bit of time but this was an excellent way to spend an afternoon. Run by a group of volunteers there is a small entry change ( about 5 Canadian dollars) but well worth it. This is a well documented history of the pioneers who built the CPR complemented with engines and rolling stock... More

When traveling westward through Canada, you can't help but notice all the changes brought about by the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway. You see them in the great hotels (Chateau Lake Louise) and Tea Houses (Plain of Six Glaciers) built by the CPR to attract tourists and you see them too when descending on Trans-Canada Hwy 1 as you...

Very nice museum - 10 CAD charge. There is an exhibit about building the railway, then a great indoor exhibit of a steam locomotive and a luxury train car, model railroads and an engineer simulator. Great okay area for the kids, too. Take the family and plan on staying a couple of hours.

From miniature scenes to being able to get inside one time working train cars- worth the trip. We spent an afternoon there wandering through the exhibits. Was truly great to see the cars set up with the actual items that were used and the volunteers made it realistic and enjoyable.
