We visited the NB Railway Museum as we were driving through Hillsborough. The Museum had a lot of artifacts of days when trains were very important to life in NB. Steve Milburn, a tour guide , was very helpful explaining how the old steam engines worked years ago. He even took a picture for us on his phone and forwarded it to our e-mail address as we had left our phone in the car.

This hidden gem is located in the quaint, little village of Hillsboroug, just a 15-20 drive from Moncton center. Visitors who seek a great history lesson of the railroad in Canada will love this place. We really enjoyed the old pictures, the stories, the walk through the old coaches.

I must say its worth the trip to this museum. One of us is especially into trains (hobbyists and family history) and boy you tough he was gone to heaven. I really enjoyed each part of the museum and we Were lucky to hit a conversation with one of the volunteers, the chap took the time to show us around. But even by yourself it's a grat place. There is so much to see. Really awesome. And you'll sfee things that are nowhere else. Quality items and dont miss the visit to the back building. We saw many of the neibourhood young persons spend time there, gotta be good!

My husband really enjoyed looking around this museum and especially climbing onto the footplate of the steam engine. There is a fascinating display of artefacts, including some old uniforms. The staff are very knowledgeable and more than willing to answer questions.

This rather underfunded museum nonetheless manages to present an interesting look back at the era of rail travel in New Brunswick. It is located in the former Hillsborough station and rail yard on a now-abandoned CN line. Its steam locomotive is out of service due to boiler problems, but you can still look it over and climb into the cab. There's a good collection of rolling stock, locomotives and railroad equipment as well as a lot of historic photos. Visitors can ride a gas-powered speeder along a short section of the old mainline, while there's also a handcar on which you can have great fun pumping yourself along some yard trackage. Well worth a visit by anyone having an interest in railway history!
