Our trip to the Midway Museum was a fantastic walk back in time. With a fully restored caboose and original station with period furniture and equipment the railway fantasy came to life. The museum has a wonderful collection from the surrounding ranching and farming community....More

Based on the previous reviews, I was looking forward to something special. However, I didn't see anything that sets this apart from the many old railway stations throughout BC. If you haven't seen a CP station or caboose before, this will interest you. Similarly, some...More

I finally had the time to stop in and check this place out. I must've driven past this museum 100 times but was always either working or in a rush to get to Point B. I'm so glad that I did. What a treat. Very...More

We stopped here on the way back east, having ridden the Kettle Valley Railway in Summerland the day before. And earlier in our trip we'd learned at Fort Steele about the role of the RCMP in securing the border. It seems the KV Railway also...More

We were at the early stages of our first-ever summer holiday. We had heard about "the railway museum in Midway" for years. Finally we were near it - and actually zipped by it on the highway and came back. The indoor displays were great. However,...More
