To find a museum of this caliber in a city as mid-size as Cranbrook is truly astonishing. It is well worth your time to devote a few hours to this place. It is free (by donation) to visit most of the museum's displays (which is VERY rare), and the gift shop is very nice. Be sure to see the Princess Alexandra Hall and read about its history. How remarkable that this room from Winnipeg was saved and moved to Cranbrook! And it is well worth it to pay to have a guided tour of the museum's collection of old passenger train carriages. This is the only museum in Canada to feature restored luxury (sleeper) train carriages -- and others in various states of restoration. So come see how "the other half" lived and traveled at the beginning of the 20th Century!
