  • A little refuge across from Ripley's and CN tower.Relax, look at the!e trains and round about. Visit the nearby brew pub  more »
  • The museum encompasses a roundhouse and park. Stall 17 is a temporary home of a railway simulator and small artifact display. Small fee to get in. Kids can ride a miniature train for an additional fee...  more »
  • If you like trains don't miss this museum in an old round house almost on the lake. Great cars and engines on display, interesting switch house. And the brewery next door is an added bonus.  more »

  • Very disappointed. Paid $5 each for absolutely nothing. The 'exhibit' inside was small and did not remotely warrant the price of admission. The train cars outside were closed. I understand that they are in the process of making new displays, but I would have appreciated a discounted price.
  • The Toronto Railway Museum is a sad joke. There is only one single room to visit and the train simulator sometimes doesn't even work. Don't waste your money on nothing at all. The most interesting things to discover are actually for free since they are the trains outside the museum.
  • Was downtown T.O. and thought it would be nice to check it out. Google said it was open, we got there and saw a sign owned by Toronto train muesem also saying it was open, go to number 17. Get to number 17 and doors are closed... There were also grandparents with their grandchild who took the Go train all the way from Whitby hoping to go inside as it was his birthday and he wanted to visit the train museum. But of course this being such a world class city its closed even though everything else says its open. Moving here from a small town it is clear by calling it a world class city it is a sarcastic joke as it is anything but that. Scary its biggest city in Canada and probably has most tourists but seems everything hereĀ is run by clowns. Easily worst city in Canada and I truly pitty anyone who comes here, just a complete stink hole
  • Looking at their site on line you would figure that the old train roundhouse would be the whole train museum but thats not the case.. This so called museum is ony 2 stalls out of 30 or so that houses the train museum the rest is a brewery, and some sort of up in coming rave nightclub? that is expanding westward with new constuction, and both are encroaching on the doorsteps of this place and pritty soon this museum will be squeezed out like a pimple.. ALL the exibits are stored outside including the restored equipmen and is showing a lot of deterioration that is slowly taking hold of the colection, the Northern steam engine that used to be store at the CNE for 50 years has had its cab numbers painted over in glossy black?... Maybe they should just paint it like the rainbow flag... This place has no direction and is run by a bunch of airhead girls that smile at you if you ask them a question about the museum, but if you would ask them about perfumes, handbags, shoes or the best place to buy them they would immediately tell you everything on that subject... Every exibit is closed outside and some are completly fenced off, but they want you to pay admission to see a room full of junk and stand in line forever to try the train simulator... This is a failing venture, I'd give it 3 more years, so you better see it before it all ends up in the scrap yard wich would be a terible thing to do but money is money and it talks... Toronto wants to be a world class city and has chosen New York for its model, so all we need now is for vandals to vandalise everything there and make it worthless like in New York, Its just a matter of time before we live up to our new New York image.. What ever happend to our old unique Toronto when everyone was happy before and life was great and we could see the lake.
  • Spent the day with my bestfriend and checked the train museum out. Has a cool mini train that runs in the summer. Cool collection of preserved old equipment and engines. What a fun day
