Wedding / Family Photos

The Alberta Railway Museum is a great place to have your wedding with the first one being held in 1980.  The museum can accommodate up to 30 individuals for your special occasion. If the weather is unfavourable, the wedding can be held in the Fort Brabant train car. 

Or if you just want to come out and get your wedding photos taken with some historic locomotives or train cars, these backdrops are available for you too.  The museum can accommodate up to 30 individuals for your photo shoot.

(Note: No alcohol is permitted on the grounds.)


Family pictures taken at the Museum are also popular. Every occasion has been captured from Christmas card photos to a special request in honour of a family member.

All you have to do is supply the photographer.

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 wedding or group photos.

Cost: Prices vary depending on size of group and the event.

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.
