Description :
Museum that relates to the history of the railways in New-Brunswick. Miniature train layout of New-Brunswick.
Exterior: The Interpretation center is a replica of a train shed, early 1900. The windows were placed at each level to let the sun in all day long, from East to West.

Interior: The entries and exit wall of the museum is made out of recycled wood. And the exhibition section is made of white pine, to relate the history of our region. The floor, who reminds you of a railroad track, is the visitor’s path to bring you along the exhibition area. Each year, different exhibition is shown. It allows us to demonstrate the artifacts in their own working position. Next to the Hall of Honor, a Passage Through Time is showcasing watches and clocks that are related to the railroading history.
