  • 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.

Where to stay in Osoyoos

Privately run hotels, beach resorts, inns, and motels make up the majority of accommodations available in Osoyoos. The most desirable of these sit between the town's two lakes, offering panoramic views and easy access to beaches on either shore. If you want to immerse yourself in the scenery away from the town itself, head northwest up Route 97 Highway--there you'll find a selection of bed and breakfasts, perched on the hill overlooking Osoyoos Lake.
