A word from the Executive Director

Welcome to Exporail, the Canadian Railway Museum

We have a passion for preserving and enhancing Canada’s largest collection of railway material. An energy shared by our entire team of enthusiastic volunteers and employees, telling the unique history of the vehicles and objects on display in the Angus Pavilion’s Grand Gallery.

Take pleasure in discovering the incredible world of Exporail. During the summer, take a ride aboard the only vintage streetcar still in operation in Québec. Experience the movement of the train, the railway yard and switching. A new walking path and exhibit have been developed to allow you to further discover Canada’s magnificent railway adventure.

Discover innovation, reflected in Canada’s railway heritage. From immigration and farming to industry, the fine arts and education, experience the legacy of the founders of Canada who made railway history, along with their dreams and inventions.

I invite you to explore Exporail on the Web, as well as exploring Exporail with our guided tours, programming, events, educational programs, exhibits and collection. I am sure you will enjoy your visit. All aboard!
