Birthday Parties

Does your child love trains? Why not have their birthday party at the Alberta Railway Museum.

Cost: $100 (including GST)

(Based on a maximum of 10 children and a maximum of 5 adults. An additional $5.00 will be charged for any child or adult over the maximum number.)

The birthday child receives an engineer’s hat, wooden whistle and lantern.

Price includes admission to the museum, train or speeder car rides (depending on the weekend) and clean up. Cake, food and decorations are not included.

Depending on the weather, the party can be held outside by the Fire Hall where there is an accessible barbecue and fridge that parents can use. If the weather is unfavourable, the party can be held in the Fort Brabant train car. (Note: This car can only hold 20-30 people comfortably.)

The museum is only open on summer weekends from the May long weekend to the September long weekend.

To register, please fill out the form under Groups and select birthday parties.

NO SMOKING of any type is allowed anywhere on the museum grounds.  This includes the museum’s parking lot. Thank you for your cooperation.

Since the museum is an industrial site, for the safety of your dog, and for the safety of our other visitors, please leave your dog at home. Service dogs are of course welcome.

We regret that not all of the museum’s grounds and collection are wheelchair accessible. Baby and child strollers are not recommended for touring the site. Plan to bring a carrier.

Rail Safety

All visitors are reminded that this is an industrial site and that proper footwear is necessary. Please obey all warning signs, DO NOT CLIMB on the equipment and pay attention to uneven entrances in display cars. Visitors ride on equipment at their own risk.


The Museum supports the efforts of Canada’s railways to promote safety. We highly recommend that our guests also visit the Operation Lifesaver website. There you’ll find more information about rail safety, including in-person presentations, videos, and other resources.
