Located in the former Canadian National Railway Station, the Marine & Rail Museum pays tribute to Owen Sound's rich past as a thriving port at the turn of the nineteenth century and the first part of the twentieth century. Officially opened in 1985, the museum's collection includes scale models of ships, steamers, trains, a dugout canoe, shipbuilding tools, marine and railway uniforms, various flags and many other items relating to the area's marine and rail past. The displays are rotated on a regular basis, so each museum visit offers a different glimpse into days gone by. The museum is in operation year round and offers group tours by appointment.
