The building contains restored cross-compound engines, the steam launch Phoebe, the famous Jechel zero-gauge working model train (originally part of The Friendly Giant TV show), the Gordon C. Leitch Discovery Centre for science and technology and Trillium Activity Room for educational programming. Guided tours are available in English and French.
