Great place to take anyone who loves trains. Toddler absolutely loved it. Lots of hands on. Not stroller friendly as it's on second floor but price and experience made up for that. Was there for an hour and toddler was engaged the entire time.
Fantastic exhibit with lots of Railway equipment. Plenty to look at and very cool to interact with. You can't go wrong for the price either. There's also a gift shop incase you want to buy some railroad merchandise.
Lots of exhibits, many interactive. The girl working the counter was very friendly and helpful. That said, the covered shack housing all of this has no heat in the winter. The lighting is fairly useless for pictures and if you are asthmatic, beware as the air quality is bad and some of the displays gave me lots of trouble.
Fantastic! Signage needs revamping, but I suspect they are short of funds. One needs a few hours to do the museum justice, but I was able to tske in a fair amount in one hour, and saw things I did not know existed. I was very disaapointed to see only one woman other than myself among visitors. Please make efforts to encourage girls and women to visit. The museum also has a good section on the history of women in Canadian Railways.
Always enjoy a good railroad museum. This one was great.
