Alberta Railway Museum

This train-lover's museum is out on the northeastern limits of the city, near Fort Road. However, if the golden age of steam is for you, it is well worth the visit. Established in 1976, this museum is all set to impress you and take you back to the period when steam engines were the discovery of the time. See a restored railway station, bunk house, water tower, and fire hall. There is a working steam train that offers rides along with numerous carriages, cars, and railway artifacts. During the summer holiday weekends, why not ride a passenger train?
