The Board of Directors of the Community Waterfront Heritage Centre decided that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the museum would not be open to the public for the 2020 Season. We look forward to welcoming visitors in 2021, once we are able to open. You can still enjoy the outdoor artifacts, large and small, on the east and north side of the former CN Station. Watch for more information on our 2021 exhibit. 

During the season, the Heritage Centre is open 7 days a week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is by donation.

Thank you supporting the Waterfront Heritage Centre.

Each time you visit, please sign the guest book.

Have you climbed aboard the caboose to see what one looks like inside?
