Whether you are a family of children of any age. OR just an adult with the child at heart attitude. This place will certainly not disappoint you. I remember some odd 30 years ago visiting an outside facility, with large trains as a kid. I know have returned with my own family and can happily enjoy it for myself and... More

If you love trains this is a MUST! Even if you don't, this place is a great place to get away for a few hours. There's lots of walking to do since these are very large trains or if you like you can get around by train! We come back every year with our kids. This museum is well-maintained and... More

I have traveled the world as an International Arts Administrator. Spent over fifty years traveling the museums of the world. I particularly adore small gems and quirky museums. This happens to be one of the best rail museums in the world! It is also a very popular destination with families. When I arrived on a Sunday morning with friends...we were... More

My dad turned 70 this year and he is a big train buff. He has wanted to see this train museum for years. So I gave him a trip to Montreal to see the museum! He was in his glory. He could tell you all the technical details about each train. All I know is that it was great for... More

Quality family time guaranteed! You need the whole day to see everything there. Family pass (2 adults + 2 children) is about $50.oo

I have been wanting for years to visit the Train Museum. It was absolutely fabulous. Much better than I ever anticipated. Not recommended for people with young children if you really want to read up and see everything. Most amazing was the miniature section. Trains, villages, lakes with cottages and people sunbathing. All done to scale. Absolutely a must see.

This was a very well planned out museum. There was enough to keep youngsters and oldsters happy and occupied. The tram ride and the mini train ride were fun for all. All the people that worked there were bilingual and very friendly. There were enough trains to go into and look into to keep everyone's interest. We liked the mini... More

My wife and I spent a very enjoyable Labor Day holiday visiting this museum. We spent several hours there and found it truly fascinating. There is an excellent collection of historically important carriages including offices on rails for railroad executives, suites for traveling royalty, school rooms for servicing remote areas, postal sorting stations and others. There are many locomotives from... More

Our family visited the ExpoRail because our son loves trains. Well, our family came away from this museum with a love of the history of trains. This attraction is simply one every train lover should visit. The steam engines are incredible!
