“Better than expected”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Had been slightly put off by some other reviews, and indeed the museum's own website. In the event it exceeded expectations in terms of the quality and quantity of exhibits. Not on the scale of some other railway museums, but well worth a visit.

“Very well done”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Surprisingly very interesting. 2 levels of exhibits plus outside. We got to speak with a retired train engineer which was neat. Cost was $10 per adult.

“Great Revelstoke Attraction!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

This is a MUST see! Beautiful big building. Even houses an old steam engine and cars. When we were there an elder engineer was up in the engine, explaining the workings to tourists.
Well displayed history. Highly recommended.

“we got in free for the anniversary”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

I'm not sure I would have felt it was worth the money if I had had to pay, since the museum was small and the admission was $10 per adult.

“A fascinating look at Canadian railway history!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

This was an extensive museum that took us about 2 hours to go through. Even if you are not a rail buff, you'll enjoy this. It would be an especially good place for young kids.
