Within a few city blocks, the Revelstoke Railway Museum, the Revelstoke Nickelodeon Museum and the Revelstoke Museum and Archives offer three fascinating historical perspectives.

Revelstoke Railway Museum

Alongside the Canadian Pacific tracks, the Revelstoke Railway Museum portrays the history of railroading through the Rockies. A very large steam locomotive and a passenger rail car occupy the main floor of the building. Adjacent galleries display pictures and artifacts that illustrate the building of the CPR and the generations of steam and diesel trains that have passed through these mountains and valleys. The museum is a must-see for families and anyone that has ever been moved by the sound of a train whistle.

Revelstoke Museum

In the former Post Office on 1st Street West, the Revelstoke Museum houses a collection of historical artifacts that recall the early days of both the community and the surrounding area.
