Newfoundland - Port aux Basques Railway Heritage Museum

Port aux Basques, NL - Located in Port aux Basques, the Railway Heritage Museum reflects the voyages that began over 100 years ago and takes a walk back in time to recapture the importance of the railway, fishery and ferry service in Newfoundland's history.

Examples of Channel-Port aux Basques’ long and colourful heritage in the transportation and fishery industry can be seen at the Railway Heritage Museum. Currently our train cars consist of a Snowplow, a Diesel Locomotive, two Tank cars from World War II, a Newfoundland boxcar, a Sleeper car, two Baggage cars and a Caboose.

Two special historical artifacts at the museum are the Astrolabes, late medieval navigational instruments dating back to the 1600s discovered by Port aux Basques resident Wayne Mushrow on ship wrecks off of Isle aux Morts. The Mushrow Astrolabes are on display at the Railway Heritage Museum during the summer season.
