The Revelstoke Railway Museum presents the history of the Canadian Pacific Railway in the Columbia Mountains, as well as the role the railway, and its workers, have played in building Canada as a nation. A large collection of artifacts, historical photographs, artwork, and full-sized rolling stock are displayed, including a steam locomotive built for mountain work.
Housed in a contemporary facility built to resemble a rail yard back shop with a stylized version of a water tower, the museum is a significant, visual landmark on Track Street at Victoria Road in downtown Revelstoke. Three exhibit galleries are complemented by outdoor rolling stock displays as well as audio-visual presentations, and a children's caboose play area.
