West Coast Railway Heritage Park

Museum in Squamish & Around

Train nuts should continue just past central Squamish to this large, mostly alfresco museum that's lined with clapboard buildings and dozens of historic locomotives and carriages – including BC's legendary Royal Hudson steam engine, housed in the purpose-built Roundhouse. Spend time chatting to the volunteers – many are retired railway operators with lots of stories to share – and don't miss the old walk-through mail train. Check ahead for kid-friendly special events, particularly during Christmas and school holidays.
