Railway Museum

Dive into our History

Volunteering with the Revelstoke Railway Museum is a great way to engage with Revelstoke's heritage and meet other people who share a love of local history, the Canadian Pacific Railway, and trains. The volunteers will help the Museum return to some of its pre-COVID offerings – clearing out and re-opening our theatre, and returning some Audio-Visuals to exhibit. This means a fair amount of (very careful) lifting and carrying of materials at the museum and at the Museum's off-site storage. After the day’s work, the director of the museum will give volunteers a custom tour of the Railway Museum.
