Located at 495 Water Street, St. John's Newfoundland, the Railway Coastal Museum is housed in the original refurbished Riverhead Train Station built in 1903. In 2003, its 100th year anniversary, the building reopened as the Railway Coastal Museum. The museum is dedicated to interpreting the history of the Newfoundland railway system from its inception in the late 1880's to its closure in 1988 as well as the history of the provincial Coastal Boat Service.
The Railway Coastal Museum offers guided, interactive tours for groups of all ages and is a great resource for Heritage Fair project research. There are also monthly themed special events for families and rental space available for birthday parties, sit-down and/or cocktail receptions. The Railway Coastal Museum is a non-profit organization. Thank you for your support.
