I am a history buff at heart and the Winnipeg Train Station tendency breath away. I wish I could live there. Created and styled after New York it's like walking back in time to an are of elitism and romance. It's worth a visit.

Stumbled across this last summer during the open doors festival. Really enjoyed it. Definitely a hidden gem right in down town Winnipeg. Pop across the street for a classic hamburger and fries at VJs.

Just a walk in the front door takes you back in time. Patterned after NY Grand Central Station it is a great replica. Small places to eat, catch the train, visit a RR museum or just stroll through looking at the walls and murals.

Spending time here will allow you to see old trains, touch old trains, hear old trains, and smell old trains. I was in and out in about 40mins, since that was all the time I had. It was worth the $7 I paid to enter....More

Lots of trains you can go into. Is inside a train station in front of the Forks. This is fun for kids and adults. Has a small gift shop too.

Being an ex railroader, my trip to this museum rekindled many of the experiences I had had both as a child of a Chief Dispatcher and my time as an Assistant Agent with the CPR. Wonderfully laid out and many people able to explain the...More

Really fun and interactive for the kids, tons of actual trains for them to go into, and lots of interesting historical facts alongside. Highly recommend. I would recommend to the operators to have their website and google information updated, as the pricing, hours, and phone...More
