  • Every town in Ontario seems to have its own railway museum but the Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario in Smiths Falls is particularly interesting. There are exhibits both inside and outside of the main building. One section reminds us of several closed or lost stations. My favorite part of the museum was the dental car that traveled to remote locations in Northern Ontario. It takes about one hour to visit the museum and the entrance fee is currently around seven dollars.
  • A great little museum for kids. They have a working diesel engine and cabooses that run on certain days of the year like their annual Polar Express Day.
  • Polar Express was great but we missed the train ornaments from other years. Nice experience!
  • Great place to visit with children. Highly recommended. Train Fest was a great experience. The Conductor in the Caboose was fantastic, he gave us an informative details of the history and working on the Railroad. 5 Stars.
  • Awesome collection of old trains that you can climb on and tour around in including a train snow plow. You don't need more than an hour to see everything which makes it a good stop on the way to or from Ottawa. We still had to drag my 4 year old son away 😀 which is always the sign of a good stop. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable.
