... as a total train fan, but I have seen many trains and train museums in my life. Revelstoke's is not the biggest, but a very well kapt and instructive one. Not a dull moment. Of course i drove through the Rockies on the simulator and boarded once the real steam train to Golden. Visit the railway days in Summer,... More

This museum, right on the rail line in Revelstoke is very informative and impressive. A train went by when we were there and that made it even more special. Well maintained and very clean, lots to see and read about and that big locomotive definitely takes the spotlight. Whether you are into trains or not, this is well worth a... More

If you are interested in "The Last Spike" and the history of the railway in Canadian history, do not miss visiting this museum. It is outstanding. We learned so much ...

Very well done railway museum in an area where the railroad was king. Interesting exhibits line the walls while a full locomotive and an original 1920's passenger car take up the center of the main hall. Very clean and well organized. Good for all ages and worth a couple of hours of your time.

We took visitors to the Railway Museum last summer and spent the whole afternoon there. There is so much to see and it was interesting even to people who aren't crazy about trains. I think you'll be surprised. I was.

Small display but well maintained. Nice stop for an 1 hour. The train displayed in the picture is the highlight of the museum.

Loved the museum and exhibits--educational and enjoyable. There are real trains outside to walk through. Trains go by which adds atmosphere. You can spend a lot of time in the museum. I bought a nice long sleeve shirt in the gift shop. This is a great place to go while I'm Revelstoke, BC.

We may never had go in if it wasnt for the rain, and we would have missed a treat. A very infomative museum to understand the history and development of this incredible area of the world.

This was on our to do list and was a nice way to spend a rainy afternoon. Lots of old pictures, very educational. It wasn't too big so you didn't get bored.
