  • Brought back a lot of favourite memories. Will definitely go back again. A great place to take the grand-kids. 
  • Located at Union Station, is worth the visit out of curiosity. In fact, I preferred to enjoy the station itself, which is great and the central hall is quite interesting.

  • This is a neat gem hidden in the heart of the city. You walk in and suddenly feel like your in a small rural town. The place is run 100% by volunteers who are really friendly and passionate. There's a bunch of train cars you can actually climb and play with the levers and buttons and stuff. The Winnipeg Model train club has a huge set up display there too they're working on - it's neat to watch them build it and pretty fun to watch the little trains go around. Admission is five bucks for adults and three for kids.
  • A great little museam full of plenty of trains and associated historical railway items. Lots of detailed information but plenty of trains and carriages to explore which really makes this place special. A real gem for those intetested in the Canadian railways.
  • Located a few minutes away from The Forks and the human rights museum, I recommend this to everyone who likes trains. It is a cosy place with lots to see and enjoy. Spend a couple of hours in this unique place.
  • My girlfriend and I visited this museum in 2015. It has a fine collection of historic trains and is very informative. You can climb upon the engines, get a close up look, and even move the levers, etc. The staff were knowledge and friendly; a fun place to visit. I recommend it for children AND adults.
  • Great little museum about Winnipeg's railway history. There are plenty of old engines, railway cars, and other artifacts such as signaling equipment and other railway vehicles. There are volunteer interpreters that are quite knowledgeable about the equipment and friendly. The museum could be thoroughly experienced inside of 2-3 hours so it's not an entire day's worth of content, but it is a great augment to a visit to the Forks.
