This is a very nicely done railway museum focussing on western Canadian railways with a good mix of exhibits including a glorious steam engine and train simulator to let all the budding engineers (like my husband) live out their dream job.

My friends and I learned a lot about the history of the railway. We enjoyed admiring all of the displays. Additionally, we were even lucky enough to see a bear in the trees.
