Transcona Historical Museum
Discover the eastern-most suburb of Winnipeg and its vibrant community history at the Transcona Museum. We are dedicated to preserving and promoting the community heritage of Transcona and the surrounding Springfield district through our collections, exhibitions and programs. Our yearly rotating displays feature the history of the community, railroad industry, settler life, Native Cultures and the natural history of the area. The museum is located at 141 Regent Avenue West, the site of a historic 1925 building that originally served as the Bank of Toronto and later the Transcona Municipal Office. The Museum's largest artifact CN 2747, the first steam engine built in Western Canada at the Transcona Shops, is on display in Rotary Heritage Park, on Plessis Road, north of Kildare Avenue. Open year round (closed 4-6 weeks in winter for exhibition renewal). Admission by donation.
