  • Lots of interesting stuff and unique information. Very central downtown location that requires you to pay for parking. But it is very accessible by transit. Excellent place to visit as part of a day.....  more »
  • This museum is a treasure trove of all things railway. They have on show the Countess of Dufferin which was the first locomotive of the Canadian Prairies. There are lots of other rolling stock...  more »

  • It's a must see place. Costing less than 10 CAD. You can walk to the history of Canadian railways. You may be the solo visitor as you cannot find much people around during off seasons. The staff was really friendly. The roof top is not fully covered so don't expect warm temperatures. The entrance is from inside the railway station.
  • Heads ups if your looking to take the kids somewhere fun in the winter just know this place is "inside" as in a roof but same temperature as outside. Not sure if it worth braving the cold we skipped this one -40 is no time to be crawling around iron horses
