Canadian Railway Museum - Review

Which of us has not been, at leatbriefly, captivated by trains. Large, thunderous and mysterious, these machnes have ever brought the promise of wealth, success and development wherever they’ve gone. At this museum, also known as the Exporail, take a trip through Canadian railway history, told through a hundred and fify exhibits. Also known as Exporail, this particular museum is maintained by the Canadian Railroad Historical Association. The exhibition hall presents its main attraction as a heritage streetcar line around the grounds and in addition a heritage track which pulls a minor traveler carriage on a previous cargo goad to Montée des Bouleaux. The line works each Sunday throughout the same period. The exhibition hall experienced a noteworthy extension throughout the 2000s when the Angus Exhibit Pavilion was opened for public view. A portion of the most important things were set in the new structure, which turned into the principle presentation building. A standout amongst the most outstanding relics is an old coach, which in 1939 travelled crosscountry over Canada.

Canadian Railway Museum, Montreal Reviews

  • Wonderful place! A must not only for train lovers but also for kids, families, technology fans, photography enthusiasts; they all will be excited to go here. The most beautiful and well preserved stock of Canadian train history going from the beautiful locomotives, their wagons, the telegraph and the wonderful people operating it. You can also go outside to discover the workshops, the old machines across the park, take the small train going through the stations, pickup that telegram you sent from the main station, or just go for a picnic in any of their many outside areas. To better enjoy the outdoors I would recommend from spring to fall season although there’s also plenty to see indoors if winter is the case. Would definitely be coming back just to take more pictures.

  • Wonderful museum with lots of trains and fun activities for kids. You can participate in small demonstrations like how a train turntable works. I thought 1-2 hours would be enough but we ended up spending 4 hours 😁

  • Wonderful collection of locomotives with historical explanations. Also great collection of passenger cars. A must visit for any tail enthusiast.

  • This museum is quite far out from the city but worth a visit. There's great stuff for kids, and the place is huge. Anyone with the slightest interest in trains will enjoy themselves.

  • First time there, was a great visit! Clean, lots to see and do for kids and the train ride was fun. Staff was great and friendly!

    • It is hard to tell anything when it comes to MLW RS-18 experts. I think you will need to call the museum directly on 450 632-2410 for this information.
