Railway Century Exhibition at the Stratford Perth Museum

This exhibit tells the story of Stratford as a railway hub, and highlights the prosperity that Perth County’s extensive railway links brought to farmers and businesses in the region. The Locomotive Repair Shop, operated by the Grand Trunk Railway and later the Canadian National Railway, was the driver of Stratford’s early economic development. Agriculture, dairy, furniture making, and knitting mills, now connected to the world by rail, were just a few of the industries that made Perth County one of Canada’s most prosperous counties.

Daily hours extend May to September. Visit stratfordperthmuseum.ca for details.

This event is wheelchair accessible.

Cost: $7/A, $6/SR/ST, $5/CH, $20/Family (Two adults and two children) + HST
