    This museum has an excellent set of railway artifacts, a number of which have been beautifully restored, and others of which one hopes will be selected for future restauration. There are items here which you would find hard to see anywhere else. And the staff and volunteers are very knowledgeable and friendly. I really enjoyed my visit.

    Kids had a great time, and there is plenty for adults to engage in as well. The place is well laid out and the staff and volunteers are very knowledgeable.

    A hidden gem! Lots of old engines that you can climb into. Old passenger cars to browse. They also offer train rides. Reasonably priced.

Where to stay in Edmonton

For access to the best entertainment options and proximity to the North Saskatchewan River and the parks surrounding it, you can't beat Downtown's accommodations. Look near the intersection of Jasper Avenue and 100 Street NW--you'll be right next to Central metro station and just a few minutes' walk from the riverside park. If you're after nightlife and cafe culture, look south of the river in Strathcona, or in the neighboring student hub of Garneau. You can also choose from a large selection of accommodations farther out in West Edmonton.
