British Columbia - Port Moody Station Museum

Port Moody, BC - The Port Moody Station Museum is owned by the Port Moody Heritage Society and is located in Port Moody's 1908 CPR Station. The building and displays illustrate the role of the station in the community and the early development of Port Moody.

The Museum is located in a CPR live-in train station built in 1908. The station was in use until the 1970s. Some rooms show a recreation of life in the station at different periods of time. The museum’s telegraph office features an operational telegraph system, original station desks with antique typewriters, adding machine and safe. The kitchen is displayed in a late 1920s style complete with Hotpoint stove and early General Electric refrigerator. The parlour contains an antique gramophone and a Dominion organ from the Ioco United Church.

At the front of the Museum property you will see a CPR sleeping car – the Venosta – built in 1921. It features a ladies’ powder room with 1920s accessories and two sleeping compartments with original fixtures. One compartment shows the top and lower berths set for night use. In the second compartment the lower berth has been converted into a couch for day use and the upper berth is recessed into the wall.
