A well organized and fun look at the forest industry of the Cowichan Valley. Always a good time riding the steam train and visiting the restored buildings.
We just happened to see this museum driving by, and came back the next day. Unfortunately we got there late so didn't have a lot of time to explore and see everything. What we did see was excellent, and we'd come back again for sure if we were in the area again. Lots of good history.

Plenty if history and artifacts but the real point scorer was the train ride! My 4yr old nephew loved it. We could have stayed a bit longer as the train stops in the woods where there is a picnic area, play area and a few more things to look at.
