The Toronto Railway Museum presents exhibits, tours, educational programs and publications that broaden the understanding and appreciation of Toronto’s rich railway heritage. The Toronto Railway Museum seeks to build on its reputation to further connect the present with the past, and the future, of railroading.
The Toronto Railway Museum is a not-for-profit, registered charity situated in the downtown heart of the City of Toronto. It is centred on the John Street Roundhouse, a designated National Historic Site. Our museum space encompasses Roundhouse Park, with our historic rail cars, locomotives, turntable, and railway buildings, as well as exhibits from our collections in Stall 17. Seasonally, we operate the Roundhouse Park Miniature Railway and tours of our rolling stock and railway buildings. We’re celebrating our 10th anniversary this year, 2020!
The Toronto Railway Museum was founded by the volunteers of the Toronto Railway Historical Association, and officially opened in 2010. Located in the heart of the historic John Street Roundhouse, the museum presents exhibits, tours, educational programs and publications that broaden the understanding and appreciation of Toronto’s rich railway heritage.
The Toronto Railway Museum, situated in the John Street Roundhouse, tells the stories of Toronto’s railways—a founding force of the city. Centrally located downtown, the Toronto Railway Museum is one of the few railway museums in Canada that is accessible by public transportation. Sharing the social and technological history behind—what was at one point—one of Toronto’s strongest industries encourages both Torontonians and visitors connect with the past. The Roundhouse is the best surviving example of a roundhouse in Canada, and provides a engaging portrayal of Toronto’s history.
