My 5 year old nephew loved the simulator. So much information about Toronto and the history of trains within it and Ontario. Definitely not something to fill a day but it's quite interesting. Will go back outside of the winter to see all the cars...More

Plan for no more than one hour, maybe less. The park is free, right next to CN tower and aquarium. Nice place to let kids run around after visiting indoor attractions.

Lovely museum and heritage centre with a small entrance fee. Well worth visiting. There are a lot of trains outside but worth paying to have a look inside too. Right in the centre of Toronto and something different to visit.
