OUR MISSION
To preserve and promote the community spirit of Transcona, through sharing our history and stories for the benefit of all.

OUR VISION
The heart of Transcona’s vibrant history and culture.

Locomotive CN 2747

CN 2747 is the Transcona Museum's largest artifact.  It was the first steam locomotive built in Western Canada, as well as the first constructed at the CN Transcona Shops in April 1926.  Following its retirement in 1960, CN 2747 was placed on permanent outdoor display in Kiwanis Park (now, Rotary Heritage Park).  The Transcona Museum acquired ownership of CN 2747 in late 2015.  The museum remains dedicated to the ongoing preservation of this historic steam locomotive.

A Community Called Transcona

Town, City, Neighbourhood, Community. For over 110 years, Transcona has witnessed several changes as it evolved from a railway town on the prairies to a neighbourhood within the City of Winnipeg. Throughout all this, Transcona has maintained its sense of community. This exhibit captures the spirit of what we have created together as a community and shares our history and stories for the benefit of all.

Other displays include Cornelius Thiessen: Stories of Transcona and a redesign of our Transcona Remembers.
