We stopped and paid $8 each (Senior Rate) to tour the museum. It was interesting and only takes about an hour. The model trains on the second level were good. Going through the old dining/sleeper car was very interesting. Free Parking.

This is a fairly small museum right in downtown Revelstoke. Free Parking is available. Allow about 1 hour to see everything, but maybe longer if you are a rail buff who needs to see "everything". There is quite a bit on Roger's Pass and the...More

A small but well priced trip into the history of how the west coast met east coast via the building of the trans-Canada Canadian Pacific railroad. In fact you have to cross the current railroad to get to it in the centre of Revelstoke which...More

A very nice museum with a lot of information about the railway history... a self-guided museum with train cars you can go in and also a train simulator and a yard with train cars to see.

This is a small museum which tells something of the story of the building of the railway through the Rocky Mountains. The highlights are certainly the restored sleeper car and the VERY large engine. You can walk through the sleeper car but not the engine.

Nice clean museum. Learned lots - but you have to be prepared to read. Enjoyed the display regarding the Chinese involvement. Teenagers had fun doing the simulator and there was a nice play area if you have little kids. Museum could be a little more...More

We recommend at least an hour but it can take up to 2 hours, or more, if you take in all the exhibits, ride the simulator, talk to an engineer, and watch the film in the theatre. You can also bring a picnic lunch and enjoy... More
