While this is not the greatest railway museum in the world it is fairly representative of Toronto and Ontario’s rail transportation history. Some restored historic locomotives, old uniforms, a 1950s themed train simulator, and a miniature train ride are all that are needed to help kids engage with this museum. It’s a small but cute addition to Roundhouse Park.

Toronto Railway Museum, Toronto Reviews - Write a Review
Amazing time at the museum, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Would recommend to anyone who is visiting Toronto or hasn't been there before. Has a cool mini train, great to bring to the family too. Great historical building. Very fascinating for the kids and for adults. Great place!!
$5 admission ($3 for Little Man) to go inside stall 17. Worth every penny. 17 - Historical pieces, maps, videos, old tools, dishes, uniforms, and more amazing artifact items to check out. Little Man loved the simulator. We both liked learning about The Canadian and the history of rail in Canada. Outside (free) - Check out Cabin D to learn about (and try) the track switches. Learn about what went on inside a Caboose. Climb aboard the new GO train car. Don Station has the Gift Shop and is worth a visit inside even if you're not in the shopping mood. All of the other trains cars can be seen from the outside even when the museum is closed. Watching the turntable rotate was pretty amazing! Wish I took more pictures. I swear I saw Wilson from Chuggington.
I thought it was great! It was really cool seeing all the old train cars and stuff. I went with my dad who's been a conductor for CN Rail for 30 years. He explained what everything was, and inside showed me basically his job on the train simulator. So many different artifacts. I got a couple things from the gift shop. Definitely worth the $5 to go inside. Loved it!
Most of the train cars are outside, but if you go inside stall #17 you can read, see artifacts, watch some videos and learn more. Only $5 and they take credit card. There is another building with a gift shop and a mini train ride. Takes 30min-hour. Great for any ferroquinologist. Take the skywalk from Union station to get there (follow the signs leading to CN tower/convention center as the tower and aqarium is right next to it across the street
Great spot if you are interested in trains. It has a growing collection and needs donations and volunteers!
