Thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful exhibit of the building and history of the CP railway! Very well done, and amazing to see the actual steam trains being housed. We were able to actually see inside and out of the trains! Very worth the price of admission! Now I want to try the Rocky Mountaineer trip...
We walked through the entire museum inside and out and enjoyed learning about a huge part of Canadian history. Learning about how all the Chinese workers were treated back then was appalling though. I didn't realize Canadians treated anyone like slaves.
The boys love trains and always have, so this was fun for them and the historical aspect was interesting for us (parents). The new train simulator was actually really cool. Only complaint about the place is the outside rail cars are not well used and not much to be seen or done with them.

Trains outside and in can be walked through, and a model railway is upstairs for the collector in every grown little boy.

If you have an hour or two, this is an excellent stop over. We picked up a lot of history on the Canadian railways and we loved being apple to see the exhibits.

It was so incredible to see what the history of our railway was. They worked so hard and this exhibited in the museum portrayed and gave us great info and really made you think about how hard our men and women worked.....an absolute must see!!!!!
We stopped in a rainstorm after a long drive; needed somewhere to stretch our legs! Two young boys 5 & under, absolutely loved it. They enjoyed going inside the engine and passenger car inside; disappointed that the model train wasn't running when we were there. Husband enjoyed the train simulator the best (an extra $2)
