“Fine for children”

Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario
Attraction details
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Unless you are really into the local history or have children who will love to climb around on the cars, there really isn't much here. The one genuine highlight is the Dental Car, which I had never seen the like of.

Great eastern Ontario town with much history about the railway and the Rideau Canal system from Lake Ontario to Ottawa.

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!

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.
