We took visitors to the Railway Museum last summer and spent the whole afternoon there. There is so much to see and it was interesting even to people who aren't crazy about trains. I think you'll be surprised. I was.

Thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful exhibit of the building and history of the CP railway! Very well done, and amazing to see the actual steam trains being housed. We were able to actually see inside and out of the trains! Very worth the price of admission!...More
