I'm a visual artist and spent most of my time there photographing all the beautiful rusty metal surfaces. I enjoyed the immersive experience and felt transported back in time. I was surprised at how much there was to see.

It was nice to see those old trains. Wish the train ride actually loops instead of back and forth.

Such a fun place to explore! The volunteers (staff) are so passionate and kind. I can’t believe we didn’t go sooner! We will be going back.

Really nice people who have a deep attachment to the old railroad days! Ask questions, they love and know stuff! The old cars are well worth investigating.

About Alberta Railway Museum

Before the 1950s, steam locomotives played a vital role in how people and goods moved around Canada and beyond. Today, their legacy as transportation workhorses lives on through the interactive exhibits at Alberta Railway Museum, where an impressive collection of preserved railway artifacts gives visitors a glimpse into how those mighty machines worked. Guests can hitch a ride on a vintage train, join a walking tour, or explore the museum's grounds on their own to unpack years of history.

  • Size: The outdoor museum resembles a small terminal with multiple train stations of varying sizes, a water tank used to fill steam trains, and more than 75 cars and locomotives onsite.
  • Eye Catcher: Built in 1909, St. Alberta Station wasn't just a place for passengers to arrive and depart, it also housed telegraph facilities and provided living quarters and office space for station agents. Today, it's where the museum's tours start.
  • Crown Jewel: The 1392 steam locomotive, built in Montreal, Quebec in 1913, was among the first of its kind to run into Edmonton on the Canadian Northern Railway. After retiring from moving mixed freight in the late 1950s, it pursued a career in acting, appearing in the films Days of Heaven and Monte Walsh.
  • Don't Miss: The museum's Northern Alberta Railways work train is one of the only surviving complete sets. It was used for repairing trains and maintaining railroad tracks.
  • Hidden Gem: Although it's not much bigger than an outhouse, Opal Station did technically function as a railway station flag stop in the hamlet of Opal, Alberta.
  • Pro Tip: Tours involve a lot of walking around and climbing stairs, so wear comfortable shoes—not sandals or open-toed footwear.
