The railroad was responsible for creating Canada as we know it and it is important to understand how it di that. There is a mix of that history and some of the more modern steam engines and carriages in the museum. Worth an hour or two of your time. You might even meet a real old-timer on the footplate of one of the locos.

This was just a very interesting museum. Didn't cost a lot to get in. We spent a couple of hours looking round.

The information was well presented and the museum was well laid out. Not a big museum, but still provided an hour's worth of fun, walking about and exploring the exhibits and cars.

A lot of history and information packed into one place. We learned a lot in a very short space of time. Would recommend a visit if you have time in Revelstoke.
