Alberta Railway Museum: All Aboard for History and Fun!

It may be a little off the beaten track, but the Alberta Railway Museum is worth the drive if you’re a history buff – or the parent of small children. In fact, when my family and I ventured over on Sunday, June 15 (Father’s Day), the majority of people there were young families, often with grandparents in tow. What a great way to get kids hooked on history!

Me and Andre with Stephen Yakimets, a volunteer with the museum and our conductor for the day. Thanks, Stephen!

Just my kind of humour!

Me and my little guy, Andre, who loved exploring the site during our walking tour.

We almost missed the train (it ran once every hour) because Andre was so absorbed by all the knobs and buttons.

We were issued these tickets, which Stephen-the-conductor punched when we were on board. Neat souvenir!
