  • If it's the sort of thing you like, you will love this. There are so many hidden dioramas and subtle jokes among the miniatures! Be aware that this not just a pile of model trains going around in circles. We took our two kids - aged 11 and 25 and they were still looking at things 90 minutes later. If you come to Osoyoos, don't miss this!
  • Well Worth the Time and Investment. Fun and so Unique to the the World Class and Large Model railways and European flavour town cites and country side.
  • Was absolutely amazing! Fun for whole family. Intricate, fun and worth the trip.
  • Always a great place to visit when you're in Osoyoos! World class miniature railways with a very reasonable admission price.
  • We spent over 2 hours there enjoying every minute. First time there and will definitely return next time we are in Osoyoos.
