Eine restaurierte EMD F 3 im Alberta Railway Museum

Das Alberta Railway Museum ist ein Eisenbahnmuseum im kanadischen Edmonton in der Provinz Alberta. Sein Schwerpunkt liegt auf Lokomotiven und Waggons der Canadian National Railways, der Canadian Northern Railway und der Northern Alberta Railways. Auf dem Gelände befinden sich auch historische Eisenbahnbauten.

Eigentümer und Betreiber des Museums ist die Alberta Pioneer Railway Association. Diese 1968 entstandene gemeinnützige Organisation eröffnete 1976 das Museum. Der Museumsbetrieb in der Sommersaison wird durch Freiwillige und einige bezahlte Aushilfskäfte abgesichert. Der Verein bietet an größeren kanadischen Feiertagen Passagierfahrten in historischen Eisenbahnzügen an.
