As a former railway worker I enjoyed the collection of railroad relics and stories from the past. In a beautiful setting but the burnt river and the old Austin lumber mill. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the park.

We headed to the train museum on a rainy day with a 1,3 and 5 yr old. They really enjoyed it. No moving trains but still fun. The museum accepts donations.

I love coming here with my son, who could watch the trains for hours. Always makes me smile to watch a bit of history coming to life; trains used to connect our small towns in this area, where we no longer have public transit.

Great piece of history in the little town of Kinmount. It wasn't over run by people so it was nice. Don't forget to walk down to the water and check out the old Austin sawmill. Lots to see in Kinmount. Beautiful town.

Has a lot of interesting history about the town. Location is a little hidden, but you'll find it, and though its quiet it's not boring.

Located within the tourist info centre in the the middle of town, this is a great little museum that should not be missed. Model trains provide a virtual tour of Kinmount and the surrounding Kawartha Lakes region, including the traditional logging industry and historic storefronts....More
