No only did the kids enjoy it, but the grown ups appreciated the history lesson as well! A fantastic time was had at the museum by the whole family. It truly was a great bonding experience.

A good way to spend the morning, our little ones are only good for a couple of hours and they love going through the trains!

“Excellent museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

We had a lot of fun at this museum. They are slowly refurbishing old train cars to reflect the era they were used in and visitors can tour a 1970s Dental car, several cabooses and see some beautiful locomotives. They also have a stretch of track for a hand-cart (ala Wiley Coyote) that you can ride for a buck!

This was a fun way to learn some Canadian history.
