“gem of a find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

What an excellent little find on route to the fortress! We made an impromptu stop here and were pleasantly surprised. Entrance is by donation and it's well worth anything you place in said donation box. tour around the three buildings and learn about Cape Breton's railway history and more. Plenty of artifacts to peek at and read about.

“Worth the stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013

My husband is a model rairoad buff and always eager to stop at anything "train". This was no exception. 3 buildings of train memorablia. A very good collection that provided a lot of information in the history of the railway and how it impacted the lives of those around it. He was pleasantly surprised at how good this museum was.

“For a Railroad Buff This is a Great Stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

My husband loves trains and when we travel we usually stop at one or more train stations and/or museums along the way. This was a great little stop. The collection is small, but good and the narratives accompanying the items are quite interesting. There is also a second class passenger car that visitors can board to get a glimpse of how things were for the average tourist. There is no entrance fee but donations are accepted which make it a great stop for someone who loves trains. We spent between 45 minutes to an hour here touring the three buildings. The ladies working at the counter (after entering the first building) were helpful and friendly, explaining the layout of the museum to ensure we didn't miss anything.
