  • Very well laid out museum covering both the Newfoundland railway and St John's Port. Good for all ages
  • If your a railway buff or want to partake in Newfoundland history than this is a must see!

Brittany was most helpful, especially with taking some photos of me outside the museum. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Great place to visit.
  • A fascinating trip into the history of Newfoundland, and the way that the NFLD railway interconnected previously isolated communities and promoted economic growth in Newfoundland during the 1900s!
