Toronto Railway Museum - Review

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.

  • This is a nice spot in touristy area of Toronto. A good family spot. Picnic tables, trains for the kids to explore and a little train ride. Definitely recommend.

  • Great exhibit of early steam and diesel trains. Antique Pacific Railway carriage, Toronto Hamilton Buffalo railways caboose, CNR and other carriages including a unique oak liquid storage tanker said to be one of only two left in existence in Canada. There is also a mural of a beautiful steam train in the station.

  • Complete ripoff. $5 gets you into an about 10x10 'exhibit' of pictures. Period. Could it be temporary? I dont know but after paying $5 i dont really care. I have more train pictures in my garage. Maybe i should open it as a 'museum'. Shame on you folks.

  • Was told about here and when I looked online nowhere mentioned it was mostly seasonal. So even mid may at 25 degree weather, 90 percent was not open. No ride, no open rail cars, half museum was closed and the simulator was down. And it was still full price. None of this was mentioned before you pay either. Waste of money unless you go in June or July.... And we LOVE our trains.

  • When we're in the area, which includes any time we are at the Skydome, CN Tower or Ripley's Aquarium, we always cross the street to visit 'Don station' to purchase tickets for the half km ride around the park. It's fun to get our tickets punched and experience the lights flashing and gates closing to pedestrian traffic as our little caboose rides by. The ride involves straddling your seat in the open while it choo-choos for 5 minutes over open terrain. $3.50/adult, $2.50/child 12 and under. Children must be accompanied by an adult. It's thrilling for kids and fun for adults who aren't afraid to let their inner child out. Sometimes they even open some of the life-sized decommissioned train cars sitting in the park for visitors to walk through. Most of the time though, we just have to be satisfied climbing on the outside of the trains to pose for pictures as they don't have the budget to staff them. They used to have signs warning against climbing the train cars and engines, as they are quite steep and far off the ground, but people do it anyway. There's also the indoor portion of the museum tucked away that I didn't realize was there until only recently, despite the many times we've visited the park over the years! The entry fee is modest ($5/adult, reduced pricing for children) but we didn't go in so can't comment on the inside displays. Overall the train ride is a must if you're in the area and have children. It's right next to 3 major attractions, so it's not hard to do.
