The end of the line, and the beginning of the road.
Located at the original western terminus of the Northern Alberta Railway and the beginning of the Alaska Highway, the NAR Station Museum presents the history of the South Peace Region and its pioneers as well as the impact and expansion that the arrival of the Alaska Highway caused. The Museum is housed in the original Northern Alberta Railway Train Station in the NAR Park. The first train arrived here in January 1931, prior to the station being completed in June of that year.
The train station is the only designated heritage building in Dawson Creek. The station area of the Museum is depicted as it was when the railway agent and his family lived in it. Four additional galleries of the museum include: Pioneer settlement; the railway era; wildlife and natural history; and the construction of the Alaska Highway.
The Tourism Information Centre is at the entrance of the museum. The museum is open during the same hours of the tourism office.
