This museum had loads about the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway as well as a couple of train exhibits. It was ideal after driving through the Rockies and seeing the line and some iconic stops (Banff, Lake Louise, etc). I'm ot a great train and raiway fan, and went just to please my husband, but I found it really interesting, as it had so much human history as well as the engineering history.

Small and interesting museum of the local railway history, especially the information on the "last spike" Only a couple of engines on show although there is a lot of reading exhibits. Worth a short stop, reasonable cost to enter.

The railroad was responsible for creating Canada as we know it and it is important to understand how it di that. There is a mix of that history and some of the more modern steam engines and carriages in the museum. Worth an hour or two of your time. You might even meet a real old-timer on the footplate of one of the locos.

This was just a very interesting museum. Didn't cost a lot to get in. We spent a couple of hours looking round.
