“Pleasant Afternoon”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

We took our grandsons to the Railway Museum and we all enjoyed ourselves. The boys enjoyed climbing into the various cars and exploring them. It was a virtual look into the past. The main building is geared toward older children and adults - lots to read.... At an extra cost of $10.00, one of the gals who works there will take you on the handcar for a short ride. It's not a bad workout! This is one of those places where once you have been, you don't need to go back.

“Great place with young children”
Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

This is one of the best museums to go to with young train fans. Children are allowed on the trains and cabooses. They are able to climb to the top of the caboose. Go in the engines. It's very hands on exploring.

“Local rail history”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

A reminder of the importance of the railway industry in our local history. Smiths Falls was an important hub in upper Canada situated on the Rideau Canal.

“Fine for children”
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.
