A wonderful and fun place to visit. I really enjoyed the visit and it was especially interesting to hear about Alberta history from the two young boys. They were great story tellers, and even changed hats and used a different accent when reading the different...More

This is a fully interactive museum. You can walk through almost every train car. You can ride the speeder or one of the trains as well. Wheelchair's are a lot harder to get around but kids can learn a lot there too.

Have never seen such a great collection for historic trains! If you love history and nostalgia, this is the place. The volunteers/society that maintain these treasures can tell you a lot of stories. They keep the place running and are there to help you/inform you....More
