What are the hours

Winter Hours:

Site Open 10am - 3pm Wednesdays - Sundays

CLOSED Mondays & Tuesdays

During our Winter Season, admissions are by donation. Our Museum, Café and Gift Shop remain open from Wednesdays through Sundays 10am - 3pm. Buildings are tucked in for the colder months and while you can still walk around site, you will not have access to building interiors.  Keep an eye on our events page for upcoming winter activities! We also plan to offer sleigh rides and an outdoor skating rink, weather dependent. 

What will i be able to do

A visit to the site will include a walk through town site. There are plenty of animals to visit, and a few that really miss and love the public attention! The Museum in the Wasa hotel is open year round, as well as the Visitor Reception Center featuring the Gift shop and Cafe.  Keep an eye on our events page for upcoming winter activities! We also plan to offer sleigh rides and an outdoor skating rink, weather dependent. 

train schedule:

The train is down for the winter season. We usually aim to have the train running for Father's Day, and then regularly for the summer season as of July 1st. It is our steam train's 100th birthday in 2023, so stay tuned for some celebrations!
 

The train can also be booked for private events and weddings! Please contact weddings@fortsteele.bc.ca for inquiries. 

*Train tickets are not included with the price of admission. You may ride the train without entering the park if you would only like to experience the train.

What does it cost

Entry is by donation for Winter! 

We get many people who want to come after hours, we do request that you come back during visiting hours.
