This world class train museum is located in downtown Revelstoke along Victoria road. Many classic train cars and engines and offers a very good history review of the challenges of building a railroad through British Columbia.

We were impressed with the amount of excellent information about railroading and the coach car and steam engine displays. I learned a great deal about how a railroad through the mountains is surveyed and constructed.

This was an experience we enjoyed immensely on a wet day in Revelstoke. The detailed history of how the railway came to the West Coast is most interesting.

We stopped and paid $8 each (Senior Rate) to tour the museum. It was interesting and only takes about an hour. The model trains on the second level were good. Going through the old dining/sleeper car was very interesting. Free Parking.

This is a fairly small museum right in downtown Revelstoke. Free Parking is available. Allow about 1 hour to see everything, but maybe longer if you are a rail buff who needs to see "everything". There is quite a bit on Roger's Pass and 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
