The Galloway Station Museum, Travel Centre & Archives welcomes locals and visitors from all over the world to celebrate our rich history.

We embrace the mud and the muskeg that is our home, educating one and all on the hardships of early settlers who had to battle these elements on a daily basis. We tell the stories of those who shaped this raw, rough land into thriving, modern communities.

The Galloway tells the story of Edson’s railway roots and the area’s role in the epic folly of the Grand Trunk Pacific and the Canadian Northern’s race west.

The museum will take you back to the early days of the Coal Branch, chronicling the lives of miners from around the globe who risked life and limb to provide for their families.

We help people link the past to the present – touting not only geographical attractions of the area, but also historical high points that enrich the experiences, and the lives, of locals and travelers.
