  • Located next to the CN Tower, Steam Whistle Brewery and Rogers Centre, this excellent railway museum displays historic wagons and locomotives. Also it is possible to visit some of the wagons (interiors are in perfect condition) and a large machine steam. The best thing is that it is free! Also can a ride on a mini-train of steam, for a symbolic price. Very recommendable and fun for the most small.

  • 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.
