  • Very well done railway museum in an area where the railroad was king. Interesting exhibits line the walls while a full locomotive and an original 1920's passenger car take up the center of the main ha...  read more »

  • A beautiful Museum on the Colombia-British railway history. Real locomotives, a lot of interesting information. Not too long and varied. Do if day does not lend itself to outdoor activities

  • 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.
  • Excellent place to take children or people interested in history of Canadian Pacific Railway and its importance in Revelstoke and surrounding area and Canada in general. Simulator is also a decent representation of working on an SD40 (I work for the railway) and has rolling stock in the yard outside to look at / walk through.
  • 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
  • A good bit of history on the Canadian Pacific Railway doesn't really cover the wider Canadian railways.
