Current Exhibition

The railway is at the heart of Transcona.  

Transcona's Railway Journey tells the story of Transcona as a railway community and highlights the impact of the Canadian National Railway, starting with the building of the Shops Complex. This exhibition also marks the Canadian National Railway's 100th anniversary in 2019.

The Transcona Museum dedicates this display to the generations of Transconians who have been proud railroaders and CN employees past, present and future.

Proudly supported by CN.

Transcona Museum Fund

The Transcona Museum has partnered with The Winnipeg Foundation to establish a permanently endowed fund to support our mission: "to preserve and promote the community spirit of Transcona through the sharing of stories for the benefit of all."

Until 31 March 2021, the Province of Manitoba will stretch gifts to this fund.  Every $2 given during this period has the potential to be stretched by an additional $1, meaning a gift of $2 becomes $3.

To help us grow our endowment fund and continue to preserve and promote our community's history, please consider making a donation today.

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.
