I really enjoyed the railway museum. It is spread out over a large area so do plan on some walking. Plan on a little bit of climbing too, as you can get into several of the trains and rail cars. Inside they have a booklet for a self-guided tour. They are helpful to make sure you don't miss anything. They... More

It is a nice departure for those that Love Trains, Train-cars, and historic coaches. What is so sad is that they've been left to the elements. After being in the Glasgow Scotland Railway Museum, this would be poor in comparison, but for those children desperate for all things Trains, then it is a must see. The employees are always welcoming... More

If you visit Prince George, you really ought to go to the Railway and Forestry Museum. The site has a large and growing collection of rail cars, engines, rail and forestry equipment and other antiques and memorabilia. A unique feature is the Penny rail station which was moved from a remote site and resettled in the park. The Cora Bell... More

The Railway Museum is a definite stop for anyone who is spending any time at all in Prince George. IT is a sprawling park filled with vehicles from a bygone era, well curated and detailed. There are examples not only of trains, but also of most of the forms of industrial equipment that were used to build this city and... More

The station was an excellent place to see its historic nostalgic place of its time! The place was also a meeting place where many people met a short time then would continue with there journey's forward.

There was lots to see here. The models of railway equipment and bridges made by a man were splendid. Outside, we enjoyed exploring the old rail cars and looking into the buildings. We learned a lot about the area.

I have come here often with my family. If your children love Thomas the Train, I would recommend coming during their Thomas days. It is a great place for a birthday party too.

A small but interesting museum documenting the history of the railroad and the logging industry. There is a self guided tour of old train cars and a 'riding'train for the kids.

Popped in here after a quick overnight stop in Prince George. Husband very interested in railways, so was keen to have a look. The museum is run by volunteers and funds are limited, but there is quite a bit to see and the locos and rolling stock look much as they were when withdrawn from service. There are no fussy... More
