  • Great spot! Little one loved the model trains, I enjoyed the train (historical) tour and how beautiful the museum is. Great restorations, amazing ballroom/ hall & entrance. Fun Cranbrook historical facts - had no idea about escaped elephants! All staff friendly and helpful. We will return! Love the idea of all ages movie showings .
  • Beautiful. No one else was on our tour, so we ended up with a private tour. Would have preferred to have a longer tour (they offer multiple smaller tours).
  • Amazing and informative train tours A must see The history center has excellent exhibits and awesome miniature train set up. Any train enthusiast will love this place. I am not one and still enjoyed it all.
  • A broad variety of train cars that you are able to explore as part of a tour. There is a lot to see and and the history is interesting.
  • As tourists this was a great place to visit to learn about a big part of Canadian history that may be gone one day. Our guide Donald was very knowledgeable. The kids loved it! Admission was for a donation and the tours were very well priced.
