  • Nice, well organized museum. Very rich and interesting displays. Museum presents history of rail and ship transportation of Newfoundland.
  • Took my kids there for a birthday party and I was extremely impressed. They have a really well organized set of activities and it was educational. I just wished that healthy food was served and that there was a train that they could go in.
  • Very interesting. Not great for toddlers as there is a lot of reading
  • The biggest waste of money. $30 for about 5mins. The walk through at the Newfoundland Chocolate Cafe was WAY better. Terrible service as well. We walked in and the girl stopped us if we would like a ticket. I said sure? And she took off for 5mins which ate into our time. Stood their for nothing she could have charged us after we walked through very dissatisfied and disappointed in the service especially since we were with elderly.
  • Good place to spend some time. More of ships and harbor history than actually trains though.

Where to stay in St. John's

To appreciate the history and colorful architecture of North America's oldest colonial city, there's no better place to stay than in the city center. This popular neighborhood displays the city's iconic, brightly painted Victorian houses, with a selection of guesthouses and inns clustered around Government House. Staying just west of the city center, near the Memorial University of Newfoundland, works as a pleasant alternative, with the expansive Pippy Park right at your doorstep.
