  • A really nice small-medium sized museum that has a plethora of information regarding the construction and racial discrimination of Revelstoke's railway and its workers. I would recommend you to come if you have kids and are interested in these sorts of information. This museum does indeed have a couple of the old fashioned (but well-maintained) cargoes which you may enter.
  • I did not expect to be so entertained by trains. We came here to give my two young sons a break on the long drive between Calgary and Vancouver. It was so much fun for them to run around, climbing in and out of the trains. Two trains are indoors, quite a few more outside. There is an excellent play area for kids with puzzles, games, dress up, coloring sheets, and a wooden train table. The signs are informative, telling interesting and emotional stories about the men who worked on the railroads. The staff are friendly and welcoming.
  • Pretty cool place to visit if you're driving through. Brought my niece and nephew, and he loved the trains and being able to go aboard.
  • Did not go in the museum, but the historic rolling stock was interesting enough to stop by and look at. Snow plows and vintage freights cars. Adjacent to the very active Canadian Pacific line in downtown Revelstoke
  • This is an excellent place to visit no matter what the weather is doing, I would recommend this to visit if you're anywhere near. Only a small site but crammed full of history, good for all ages but perhaps better for the people who understand the importance & achievement of the early pioneers. I hope the people here get more help to expand their museum with more rolling stock & exhibits. We loved this place keep up the good work. Visiting from England
