...so of course we stopped. Him and the kids really enjoyed themselves while I took a much needed nap! Haha. They spent about an hour inside touring everything, and found it very interesting and worth the stop.

Really enjoyed my visit. Love crawling around old locomotives, middle of the week so had one of the local historians guide us around. Great place to stop in if the slopes or mountains are to socked in to partake.

This is a wonderful little "single-subject" museum; the single subject is the Canadian Pacific railway in Revelstoke. There are several well-curated exhibit rooms with a fair number of artifacts from the period during which the railroad was constructed. It's worth watching the short film, too....More
