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.
The museum offers a wide variety of education programs, currently, our educational programs are offered virtually.

Port Moody Men's Shed
Men’s Shed societies started in Australia and New Zealand in the 1990s to provide men a place to commune with each other as they kept their hands busy with handyman projects.
The mental health benefits of mentorship and support they provided quickly spread worldwide. Port Moody now has a Men's shed operating out of the Port Moody Station Museum
