The Museum

Free Miniature Train Rides!

Available Saturdays during the Market June – August at the Museum

The Palmerston Railway Heritage Museum itself is unique, as we are the only railway museum in Wellington County. The Museum has on display numerous railway and Victorian artifacts on display that have been generously donated by members of the community and surrounding areas.

The Museum also hosts a large library of railway books, which are located in our genealogy room. Additionally, the Museum has numerous railway records and has begun to collect microfilm resources, including a large collection of back issues of the Palmerston Observer newspaper. These can be accessed by individuals who wish to research their family history and discover ancestral ties to the railroad.
