Learn the history of Canada's railways at Exporail, le Musée Ferroviaire Canadien. Founded in 1961, the country's largest railway museum was built close to Canada's first railway, which began operation in 1836. Retrace these beginnings and examine artifacts and locomotives in permanent, temporary, and virtual exhibits that weave together the story of the railway. Hop on the heritage streetcar line or railway and take a trip around the museum grounds, then head to the cafe for a bite to eat. Youngsters can explore the renovated 1913 Pacific Railway baggage car, now transformed into an interactive learning space for three to seven year olds.

  • Was a great experience, lots of stuff to look at, great ambiance. We even caught a ghost on cam in the grey caboose ;) or at least something that looks like it!
  • I've always loved trains, so I had a great day exploring this museum. They have a large collection of trains and very informative exhibits about the history of trains in Canada.
  • awesome museum and great for kids too
  • Great place to burn a morning or afternoon with the kids, especially when the weather isn't great. Tons of old trains with a bunch of areas geared towards children - a little Thomas track to play with, an old mail car with games, uniforms to get dressed in, and other activities, a HUGE model train that the kids love watching go around a very detailed landscape. When the weather is warm enough there are also two outdoor trains offering rides (included in your ticket price) - one is an old trolley car that does a tour of the grounds, and the other is a small ride-on train that can take about 20 kids & adults on a fun ride through the woods, across a couple bridges and through a tunnel. Always a hit with my boys. Hitting the Burger King just up the street for lunch with the huge 3-story play structure is icing on the cake for them!
  • the kids love it, lots of trains to see and climb on.
