Participating in #HISTORICPLACESDAYS

The Northern Rockies Museum of Culture and Heritage exists to present and preserve the history of Hinton and surrounding area. We are housed in Hinton’s original 1911 train station. Our family friendly, interactive exhibits cover the history of our local industries, railroads, resources, and people. Highlights include our model train, working telegraph, animal skulls, and gift shop. The grounds around the museum are a great place for a picnic; you can also check out our garden or the water table activity on our deck. Visit us to receive a friendly, personalized tour and learn about the history behind our beautiful mountain town: we look forward to meeting you!

Fun Facts

The museum building is the oldest building in Hinton- it was built in 1911! It operated as Hinton’s train station until 2003.

The train station design included living quarters for a section gang, station agent, and family, all to run the station and maintain the railroad.
