  • Was a great and relaxing self guided tour. Lots of information and very well done. Great if you have kids or just a train enthusiast
  • Fun museum, especially for kids. Not enormous (you can probably see everything in about an hour), but some interesting examples of different types of train cars and an old station. Tour was included in the price, and they did a great job of making it suitable for our family. There are some big steps of you want to go inside the trains.
  • Relaxed, self guided tour of our rail history. Train cars and engines can be climbed on and photographed. Some are open to go inside and learn some things you never knew about Canada. A fun little museum to take the kids to.
  • Lots to look at for little train fans. The pump cart was a great experience.
  • Neat place to visit if you end up at Smith Falls. Got detoured on my way to Ottawa took the 15 and spotted this gem. Great for kids who love trains. Real hands on! Son loved it, walking through trains, looking around the train station. Enjoyed it too, felt like a kid
