The historic Port Moody Station which houses the Port Moody Station Museum was the second station built by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company. Completed in 1908, the building and displays represent the role of the train station in the community and the early development of Port Moody.
The Port Moody Station Museum is owned and operated by the Port Moody Heritage Society. Other activities conducted by the Port Moody Heritage Society include:
- hosting many educational programs and heritage events at the Station Museum and elsewhere,
- actively adding to a collection of over 200 oral histories by recording the stories of Port Moody residents and workers,
- providing research services to local historians and writers,
- assisting the Port Moody Heritage Commission in the creation of the Stone Marker Program and Heritage Building Inventory.
- developing a series of educational heritage programs and volunteer opportunities for new immigrants.
