Very well done railway museum in an area where the railroad was king. Interesting exhibits line the walls while a full locomotive and an original 1920's passenger car take up the center of the main hall. Very clean and well organized. Good for all ages and worth a couple of hours of your time.

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.

Small display but well maintained. Nice stop for an 1 hour. The train displayed in the picture is the highlight of the museum.

Loved the museum and exhibits--educational and enjoyable. There are real trains outside to walk through. Trains go by which adds atmosphere. You can spend a lot of time in the museum. I bought a nice long sleeve shirt in the gift shop. This is a great place to go while I'm Revelstoke, BC.

We may never had go in if it wasnt for the rain, and we would have missed a treat. A very infomative museum to understand the history and development of this incredible area of the world.

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! Now I want to try the Rocky Mountaineer trip...
