Explore Toronto’s railway past!

 

“Mechanical Marvels” will explore how railway technology was developed and how trains in Toronto changed the physical landscape of the city. Mechanical Marvels will transport visitors to the largest ever passenger car yard in Canada, and paint a picture of Toronto’s industrial boom.

 

Mechanical Marvels is an approximately 30-minute, outdoor guided walking tour that takes visitors around Roundhouse Park and into our historical buildings, locomotives, and passenger cars.

 

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

  • Stand on the site of Canada’s largest passenger car yard

  • Experience the daily tasks of a railway switch operator

  • Time travel to the past by climbing aboard our restored train cars and heritage railway buildings

 

VISITOR SAFETY

The safety and well-being of our visitors, volunteers, and museum staff are our highest priority. While we are looking forward to welcoming you back, additional health and safety precautions are in place. We ask that visitors stay home if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 or are considered to be in a high risk category.

All staff are required to wear a mask. We strongly encourage visitors to wear a non-medical mask or face covering if they are able, frequently wash or sanitize hands, and maintain physical distancing inside and outside of the museum and on tours. We thank our visitors in advance for complying with these new modifications.

 

We will limit the number of visitors in the museum and on guided tours. All visits to the museum must be pre-booked through Eventbrite. Timed ticketing is being used to manage the number of visitors to the museum.
