  • Not only Lunenburg itself, outside there are interesting. The museum displays exhibits from the first half of the 19th century, model railways, and also a lot of interesting things about the history of this important transport and means of communication.

  • Loved it. We almost drove past it and gave it a shot. You can tell there's a lot of love and effort put into the experience right from the start. The interconnecting model is fantastic and the experience in transitioning from the day to night and back in the model was great. It was my son's highlight of our Nova Scotia trip. My daughter loved it as well.
  • Almost drove by it, saw the sign and stopped in. Wow! The place is chalked full of memorabilia and it is just fantastic. The model railroad is brilliantly done and the staff is wonderful. If your in the area this is a great place to go.
  • It was a great spot for people who like trains! Not really geared towards younger children but my son still enjoyed himself... the staff were wonderful :)
  • Great model railway! The owners are really nice and informative. Great history as well.
  • Great experience, spectacular model train exhibit, serious piece of NS history.
