What a fabulous location for an outdoor Holiday Festival!
The Port Moody Station Museum was built in 1908 and features historical exhibits, a 1921 Venosta railcar, gardens, educational programs and other exhibits. Fun fact: Port Moody was originally chosen as the western terminus for the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1882, but the railway later pushed on to Vancouver, some would argue doing Port Moody a huge favour!
However we view it, the trans-Canadian railway
changed all our lives forever.
The Museum offers a wide variety of education programs,
and a visit to the Museum during the Holiday Festival
will have some added displays and activities.
Walk through the decorated Venosta Railcar, and stop by the
Port Moody Men's Shed for a visit.
The Port Moody Station, built-in 1908, was the second railway station built in the area. The first was the 1882 Western Terminus Station which was demolished in 1961. The Museum is owned and operated by the Port Moody Heritage Society.
The station, designed to be a live-in unit, consists of two floors and a basement. The main floor is accessible to the public as the main display area;
the top floor is being used for administration and the
basement is collection storage and washrooms.
The Museum features the 1908 station building, a 1921 railcar, a World War 1 outdoor trench display, a meditation garden and a CP railway garden.
Museum hours are 1-8 pm Daily to Dec. 23rd,
then closed at 6 pm Dec. 24.
