Railroads play a major part of the history of Canada. Toronto was/still is a major rail center. Until this museum came on board, there was not a good representation of its role with the railroads. It is a work in progress but the displays they...More

If you like trains don't miss this museum in an old round house almost on the lake. Great cars and engines on display, interesting switch house. And the brewery next door is an added bonus.

Good place to unwind prior to the Jays game or a side trip to the touristy CN Tower or aquarium. Only thing is if they clean up the place it could actually be a really big draw for tourists.

We did not even know this place existed until today. I have been down to Rogers Centre countless times as well as CNE tower. It is right across from Ripleys Aquarium. Kids loved riding the train.
