Located in the community’s old train station building near Rocky Point Park, the Port Moody Station Museum showcases the history of the surrounding area.
Port Moody’s Museum
The Port Moody station is well over 110 years old and was the second railway station to be built in the area. The first station was built in 1882 and 26 years later, in 1908, Port Moody received its second train station. The Port Moody Station Museum itself is located, as the name implies, within what was formally one of the original two train stations in the town. The museum doesn’t just focus on the history of the Canadian Pacific Railway, however. It also covers the history of Port Moody from the first Indigenous settlers in the area up to the 20th century.
Some of the highlights of the museum include a real 1921 passenger train car, an outdoor display on what World War 1 trenches were like, and outdoor gardens.
