Over the years the museum has received artifact, archival and library donations from individuals from across Canada who believe in the importance of preserving and showcasing our railway heritage. Our mandate is to collect, preserve, interpret and display the heritage of railways and railroading in Eastern Ontario. The Museum's collection focuses on railway equipment, manufacturers, the human element of railroading, the industry's impact on the growth of the area and on the lives of its residents and railway.
The Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario will encourage the preservation of railway heritage in our region. The museum will interpret the industry’s impact on the lives of our residents through well planned public programming, engaging exhibitions and our collection of artifacts.If you have an item(s) you wish to donate to the Museum, please feel free to call or email us and speak with our curator.
