The Railway & Forestry Museum revives Prince George's captivating history back to an era when the railway was the region's lifeline and forestry was becoming BC's future.
 
The Museum presents an interesting and fun industrial heritage attraction in a spacious park-like setting, where visitors are free to enjoy a "hands on - climb aboard" experience.

Celebrating Penny Days ~ July 20 and 21 ~ 11 AM to 4 PM

On July 20 and 21, we celebrate the community of Penny, BC.
Penny, BC is located between Longworth and Dome Creek on the northeast side of the Fraser River in central British Columbia. With a community hall and 5-10 permanent residents, the 40 plus houses are mainly absentee owned, but are occupied seasonally.
Penny train station has been moved to the Railway & Forestry Museum in 1988.
Tour the Railway & Forestry Museum, hop onto the Cottonwood Minirail train (ticket purchase required), learn about our Heritage Gardens and the life in Penny, BC now and then.
Enjoy local artisan demonstrations such as Blacksmithing, Wood-turning and Wool-spinning and visit Penny Market with local vendors.
On scheduled times (see Itinerary in Upcoming Events) during the event, we will have speakers and musicians for entertainment.
Our old-fashioned concession will take care of the culinary well-being (purchase required).
Regular Admission Rates to the Museum apply.
Schedule may be subject to change.
