Our Museum

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.

To celebrate National Indigenous History Month we are excited to be bringing in a travelling exhibition on loan from the Royal BC Museum.

Celebrating Asian Heritage Month in May

In 2001, Canada designated the month of May as Asian Heritage Month, to celebrate the many achievements and contributions that Asian Canadians have made and continue to make to the growth of Canada. Its important to reflect and learn about the fight for human rights and social justice of Asian Communities in Canada.

In acknowledgement of Asian Heritage month, the museum has taken a look at our  railway exhibit and updated the display on the history of the CPR line to reflect the important role that Chinese laborer's played in its construction.
