One of only 5 of it’s kind built in all of Canada, the CN Station Museum in Radville highlights an important chapter of the town’s history. The station was built in 1912, and served Radville until the late 1970’s. It was saved from demolition by a concerned group of Radville’s citizens, and was designated a Municipal Heritage Property in 1984.

The main floor of the museum features railway artifacts to recreate how it would have looked during its heyday. The upstairs features household artifacts to recreate the living accommodations which were usually occupied by the Station Agent.

The museum is also used as a venue for various events throughout the year, the largest being Heritage Days in the fall. This annual event features a parade, kiddie games, beer gardens, show n’ shine, soap box derby, canteen and community supper, and much more.

Faits amusants

The station was restored by volunteers without the help of a single grant.

When the station was built in 1912, the total cost was just $8300. The cost to restore the station was more than double that!

Tourism Radville has recently added QR codes to many exhibits, creating a more interactive and engaging experience for visitors. It is also a way to share fun facts and tidbits of history that may otherwise be forgotten.

The summer student for Tourism Radville operates out of the station, meaning they are always ready to give you a tour!

The upstairs living quarters provide a birds eye view of main street. Surely the families who lived there over the years had a great time people watching!
