Excellent locomotive to view and some nice exhibits, the Golden Spike was laid just East of Revelstoke so there is real feeling of history attached to the Museum.

A brilliant museum to visit especially if you are a train geek like my girlfriend. This visit earned me many many brownie points. Jokes aside an excellent museum full to the brim with history and information.

This world class train museum is located in downtown Revelstoke along Victoria road. Many classic train cars and engines and offers a very good history review of the challenges of building a railroad through British Columbia.

We recommend at least an hour but it can take up to 2 hours, or more, if you take in all the exhibits, ride the simulator, talk to an engineer, and watch the film in the theatre. You can also bring a picnic lunch and enjoy... More
