  • The Museum is large enough, a lot of the exhibits from the first locomotives to more recent models. Happily revered descriptions of all trains and cars. All vehicles looks good, refurbished. In General, there is something to see both kids and adults.

  • Coolest collection of rail cars.This is nice place to sit and relax and to breathe some fresh air in the downtown area if Toronto.Love this place.. Nice view to cn tower.
  • That might be my son's favourite spot in town. He loves trains, Thomas & friends, brio, all kinds of trains. He enjoys riding their little steam train. It costs $3.5 for an adult and $2.5 for a kid. A 5 minutes ride always makes my son's day.
  • We stopped by this attraction because it's right across the Aquarium and the CN tower that we were going. Nothing special but it's free (at least the outside portion) and it was cool to walk around and explain to our son how the roundhouse worked. A must if you are a train enthusiast.
  • My family and I stopped in on our last trip and the kids really enjoyed it, especially my son who loved trains.
  • The museum is not big, but it is nice to pay a visit. The miniature train ride is fun for kids and grow ups alike.
