Exhibitions

  • Reliving Canada's Railway Adventure

    Family Fun > Exhibitions

    Grand gallery of the Angus pavilion All year long! Railway fever hit Canada as early as the 1830s. Less than a century later, railways crossed the country from the Atlantic to Pacific. It all began with a short 22.5-kilometre trip between La Prairie and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu Quebec, at a speed of 25 kph. We have come a long way since then! The moment you enter the main gallery, you will feel like you are in a train station, in front of a replica of the steam locomotive Dorchester . Then your adventure begins. Walk along themes platforms, enter some of the historic vehicles and relive the emotions of famous travellers and common folk alike as they rode Canada's trains. Take in this one-of-a-kind railway universe.

Inside the baggage car, our younger visitors will have access to three coloured areas, especially designed to enable them to identify a means of transportation and spark their curiosity and imagination. -“passenger trains”, the blue area, contains several introductory stands. “pack your bags” ticket office, “ the little rail workers’ challenge!
