Not far from from Ripley's Aquarium and CN tower. This is modest, low cost museum. Part of it is outside and free to explore. Our kids went on the little train ride. You pay to see the exhibits inside. They have a quirky gift shop.

The outside is worth seeing and it is free. The inside cost us $6 and it not worth the time or money. Just a small area to view some railroad videos ,pictures etc.More

Hi Craig, I'm so sorry that our museum did not live up to your expectations. Sadly, while CP required the City of Toronto to allow space for a museum within the John Street Roundhouse, they did not stipulate that the entire building be available to...More

The Toronto Railway Museum was a wonderful surprise addition to our visit to Toronto! It features a small historic indoor museum (costs only $5 per person) where you can view various pieces of railway history and... you get to learn how to drive a train!...More

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

Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner
Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the
outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is
celebrated by a number of monuments and museums,
giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier
destination for modern art, people here stroll through
the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy
the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe
