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 stopped in Revelstoke for few days and visited the museum (with our 2 children 6 and 9 years old). The museum is small with many interesting things to learn, see and play with. You can discover the story of the Canadian Pacific Railway, understand...More

This is definitely worthwhile stop on your way to the Canadian Rockies. While the museum is small and growing (I hope) the quality of their displays remind me of the world class (5 star) railway museums I have visited in Berlin, Sacramento, St. Louis, etc....More

Cross over the railway tracks and park up at this gem of a museum. It does not look big from the outside but looks can be and are deceptive. For 10 dollars per adult it is a find and be prepared to spend a couple...More

Impressive engine and carriages inside but the rolling stock outside was deteriorating in the weather. Good displays of the terrible history of the railroad builders thru harsh terrain. Nice clean toilets. The intriguing-looking miniature railway upstairs wasn't running unfortunately.

What a challenge to build a railway through the mountains. Keeping the rail history alive with interactive exhibits and informative displays. Easy to forget how huge the steam engines were and the courage of those who built and maintained the railroad.

Canada is proud of its coast-to-coast "Canada Pacific" railway system: a true engineering feat as well as a sign of human resilience in the Rockies! If you are into learning about the history of the places you are visiting and being able to connect the...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
