Exporail, the Canadian Railway Museum
Starting November 19, 2022, Exporail, the Canadian Railway Museum will transport its visitors into the Magic of Christmas. Many vehicles will be decorated and illuminated in the Grand Gallery, activities will be offered and Santa will meet the visitors! Railway Christmas is a must-see event for the whole family! To celebrate this return to a true Christmas atmosphere, a new exhibition dedicated to model trains will complement the experience, for the pleasure of all the visitors.
First presented at Pointe-à-Callière during 2021, the exhibition Train, A railroad to Dreams was produced by Pointe-à-Callière, Montréal Archaeology and History Complex, with the participation of Exporail, the Canadian Railway Museum. The exhibition presented at Exporail until September 5, 2022, renamed Train, a Railroad to Dreams, a World in Miniature, is devoted to model trains that, beyond being a toy, imitate the reality of the railway. They recall a great history, that of Montreal, the cradle of the railway adventure in Canada, and that of the companies that have marked it. This exhibition offers a playful, technological and historical look at the world of railroading on different scales! Whether imaginary or real, this journey on rails has everything to make you dream. All aboard!
