They will then go to our Spike hammering activity. Warm up  and enjoy some hot chocolate as you climb aboard our 1921 train car and make your own conductors hat.

Join us at the Port Moody Station Museum on February 21 as we celebrate Heritage. Enjoy detailed tours of our McKnight Centennial Trench from the guys who built it, then be first to witness a new project we are doing. At 1:00pm, we will present a WWI photo, talk about the photo and then create a reenactment picture. This will start a series of reenactment photos that the trench squad will be doing throughout the next few years. There will be detailed tours of the trench afterwards. Learn about your community’s heritage by getting a detailed tour of the museum and learning about the 1908 train station. There is an event at Queens Plaza that we will also have a display at and a shuttle will be running from the museum to Queen Plaza throughout the day!
