Whilst not particularly extensive, this museum is well put together and covers the early era of rail in the Rockies, and in particular the exceptional challenges faced by these pioneers.

Thank you for your comments. We like to emphasize the role people have played in the history of the railway and are pleased you experienced that in your visit.

It was bigger and more impressive than I imagined. Worth a stop! It had a lot of information about the rail road with interactive train stimulator videos etc.

Leave yourself lots of time to explore every nook and cranny of this exhibit. An immersive experience in many ways, this is a great way to spend some time on your own or with family.

Our 6 year old son loves trains so he really enjoyed this. The best part was going inside the passenger car. Very well done and worth a visit.

Sad to see the equipment rotting away and not being restored. The model trains were not running, and most exhibits are locked up. They need to restore some of the equipment before they fall apart.More

A fantastic museeum for trainlovers. Me and my wife visited on a rainy day in Revelstoke and it was a great experience. Lots of big trains and a lovely modeltrain set.

Thanks for your review! You must have caught the only rainy day all summer, but we're you glad you spent it at the museum.

Great to see the inside of the two trains in the museum. Many small towns have railway museums and this really distinguishes it. We didn't spend as much time there as I would have liked but what we saw was great.

Have been several times. The kids love going and checking out the model train exhibit in particular. It's a really nice layout, with lots of history of the railway and area. Definitely worth the time.
