It was perfect for my 3 year old twin boys. A quick easy visit!
they enjoyed the streetcar rides. The toy gift shop was fun.

My first visit to the museum was in 1972 and I am constantly amazed at the amount of work and the improvements made over the years. Everyone is very friendly and helpfull. A great day's outing.

“Preserving History - Train rides”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

One of several preserved, and running trains in the Hamilton, Burlington, Brant area. Enjoyed the ride; enjoyed learning about the old routes these railcars used to take on a regularly scheduled basis.

“Antique Trains were fun to ride for the kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

Short ride from Guelph, the kids enjoyed the trains and the ice cream car. Not a whole day outing, good for a few hours for a school trip, daycare or your own family.

“Volunteers Be Very Proud”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

Many years and long hours of dedicated volunteer work by those who love streetcars has resulted in a quaint museum well worth a visit.

We have taken visitors who recall the days these vehicles were in use. Great for sharing and stimulating memories!

Teaching children about the evolution of rail and helping them understand changes in vehicle construction as well as a chance to ride the short run is fun. Some of the older cars evoked sad feelings as their need for repair is evident.

Buy something at the little gift shop to help support the museum.

Be sure to check the hours of opening! A good weekend excursion for a trip into rural Ontario. Lots of various routes on country roads too!

We travel to rail museums internationally and given what this one has had to work with it is a real little gem.
