The train museum is a really good place to visit in Revelstoke. Lots of history about the Canadian railways, with lots of pictures and models. The old trains that you can walk through are also a wonder to see. Well worth a visit.

A great display and history of the CPR and Revelstoke. Couldn’t ski, so was nice to be somewhere warm and interesting for a few hours. Videos were informative, the model railway man was very knowledgeable and happy to share his interest.
