  • This wasn't a part of our original plan as we were in Victoria for the Butchart Gardens and this was about an hour drive. We're so happy we decided to make the trip as it was easily our boys' favorite...  more »
  • 古い車や古い機関車や木材作業用の道具が展示されていて、一昔前の産業を知る上でも貴重なセンターです。 実際に走る機関車に乗車できるのは、大人も子どももちょっとしたタイムスリップを楽しめると思います。 
  • I wish there is more obvious note on the website or on Google map about closing on the holiday. We were doing a Vancouver Island road trip and dropped by hoping to see the train only to find out that ...  more »

  • Great place to take the whole family to explore. There was the train ride which the whole family enjoyed. A guide was on the train narrating the scenery. There was also live entertainment. The kids seemed more interested in the craft table. It's a great place to learn about the old rail way system and BCs Forestry industry in the past.
  • The train ride was excellent!! My son was thrilled. We went over the Halloween weekend so we had to wait about 45 minutes to ride but it was well worth it.
  • Friendly staff, the train is fun. Alot of trails to wander around. They frequently have deals on Groupon.
  • The museum is good but what makes this place awesome is the steam train. My kids love the train. You can easily spend an afternoon here with your kids without ever feeling bored.
  • We have gone here in the winter and the summer. During both times we had a blast. Lots to see and do and very educational!
