The Palmerston Railway Heritage Museum building itself is unique, as we are the only railway museum in Wellington County. The museum has numerous railway and Victorian artifacts on display that have been generously donated by members of the community and surrounding areas.

We also host a large library of railway books which are located in our genealogy room. The museum has numerous railway records and has begun to collect microfilm resources which can be accessed by individuals who wish to research their family history and discover ancestral ties to the railroad.
