  • There's an awful lot to see in the Winnipeg downtown area, especially around the Forks district. Although not the most astounding museum in town, the Railway Museum is a nice reprieve from the world c...  more »

  • Went through the museum on a cool April day. Place is basically outdoors, so pick a warm day for more enjoyment. Some interesting exhibits, but unless you are a real railway buff, not super exciting. ...  more »

  • Lots of cool stuff in here, a hidden gem in Winnipeg. An easy way to get here is to use the free parking at the forks and walk here. The train station is kind of cool, but inside, there is a small sign pointing up stairs to a museum. If you look up the stairs in looks like a tiny hallway with some garbage upstairs. Walk up the stairs and be amazed. The museum spans the entire building north to south. The museum is quite run down, broken windows, no heat, etc. But the exhibits are amazing. A must see.
  • This museum turned out to be better than I expected with a full steam locomotive and an interesting snow plow locomotive. Also a model train set that the kids enjoyed. They started selling small mishmash HO train sets for a low price. I almost picked one up. A nice place to bring the kids while waiting for the train, if it is open...
  • The place is awesome but the director is a total dick to kids. You might as well duct tape the kids hands to their sides. You can clearly tell he doesn't like kids. Other than the directors grumpiness My 3 year old loves the train! Would have gotten a full 5 stars if it wasn't for the grumpy old man.
  • Great for kids who love trains. They have a large model train in the middle of the museum run by some hobbyists. The rest of the museum is old trains, most of which you can go into and view what they were like inside. The kids love to and are encouraged to ring the bell. This museum is not heated, so if you plan to go in Winter, dress warm!
  • It's okay if you stay on the platform, but to get to the level of the tracks there was an unstable, severely wobbly step that I nearly fell off of. The south end of the museum there was a putrid smell of turpentine that never really left you until you were out of the museum. The place didn't look finished at all. But for the very generous admission price that you can't find anywhere else, anymore, unless you have a time machine, it was an interesting visit. I just wished there was a safer way to get closer to the locomotives that were on display.
