Sadly the Port Moody Station Museum’s Annual Easter Eggstravaganza had to be cancelled this year to help keep everyone safe and continue to flatten the curve.

We are excited to now be doing an online Easter Event ! We have teamed up with Jeff McLellan and our mutual friend the Easter Bunny to plan one of the biggest picnics in Port Moody history ALL ONLINE. (maintaining social distancing at all times of course, as we all have to do our part).

The picnic is this Saturday April 11 and starts at 11:15am. This is an opportunity for you and your family to plan a picnic that can take place in your yard, living room, garage, patio or kitchen. Get your picnic blankets out and be settled for 11:30am when Jeff McLellan will be joined by our good friend the Easter Bunny ! This will be on the Port Moody Discussion Group’s Facebook Live and will  also be viewable on the Port Moody Station Museum’s Facebook page ( with a viewing party link).

Feel Connected with Hearts

The Port Moody Station Museum has been inspired by Bailey Grose from Prince George. She started Hearts of PG  that started getting people to put hearts up in their windows as a way of people to feel connected. We love that and here is our heart! Come on Friends and Members of the Port Moody heritage Society lets put up our hearts in your windows! Post your picture on our Face book page if you want! what a way to feel connected.  The Museum will be putting up hearts on our street sign this weekend but until then here is our heart!

Welcome!
during this uncertain time, a time in which also many public places are closed  the museum will offer under #HoledupMuseum a series of posts on history, artifacts, information and we might not even rule out small videos.
So please join us and let us have fun during our self imposed social distancing.Today is St. Patricks Day. St Patrick was born in Roman Britain, in the 4th century. Taken to Ireland as a slave. He escaped and in 432 returned to Ireland to convert the Irish to Christianity. Many legends were woven around him, one that he drove all the snakes out of Ireland and that he used a shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity.
Irish immigrant brought St. Patricks Day to the USA were it was transformed largely into a secular holiday of revelry and celebration of all things Irish.There are too many great Irish writers to recommend. So we just pick one that you might not know – Elizabeth Bowen The Heat of the Day.
