The Canadian Railway Museum is a must-see for any rail enthusiast. I spent 4 hours here and could have stayed longer. The display of rolling stock, including several locomotives, is very impressive and you can go aboard several. There's a short free film about the Toronto streetcars called The Red Rocket that's quite enjoyable, plus I highly recommend the longer... More

If you like trains, have young kids, or are just looking for a fun way to spend a couple of hours walking through a unique perspective of Canada's history, ExpoRail is a wonderful outing. Dozens of real life exhibits, activities both indoor and out, and an easy going friendly staff that is welcoming and helpful. Cost is not unreasonable, but... More

We went to check out the museum to see if it would be suitable to bring our granddaughter and friends here and it certainly would be. Lots of trains to look at, lots of areas set up for the kids. Plan on spending a couple of hours. Probably better to go in warmer weather so you can see all the... More

If you like trains and what they represent, then you'll enjoy Exporail. My hubby and me went for a visit thinking Exporail was only a museum... It's a lot more than a museum. Make sure you get a guided tour. It's really worth it. Planning on returning soon.

We heard about this place through montrealfamilies.ca and also because Thomas the Train comes here in May. We were lucky that there weren't that many people on our visit today, probably because it's spring break.... they have an outside little train you can ride on. And just all the trains were breathtakingly beautiful and fun to explore, and so impressive.... More

This is an AMAZING museum. Having lived all my life in Montreal, I am somewhat embarrassed to admit that I went to the museum 2 weeks ago for the first time. I would recommend this visit to anyone - whether you are a train lover or not. They have a wagon that was used as mobile school that served remote... More

Whether you are a family of children of any age. OR just an adult with the child at heart attitude. This place will certainly not disappoint you. I remember some odd 30 years ago visiting an outside facility, with large trains as a kid. I know have returned with my own family and can happily enjoy it for myself and... More

If you love trains this is a MUST! Even if you don't, this place is a great place to get away for a few hours. There's lots of walking to do since these are very large trains or if you like you can get around by train! We come back every year with our kids. This museum is well-maintained and... More

I have traveled the world as an International Arts Administrator. Spent over fifty years traveling the museums of the world. I particularly adore small gems and quirky museums.
