The Transcona Museum offers research services as part of the on-going operations of the museum and archives. We work to assist individuals with their personal, business and/or scholarly research projects. In the past, we have assisted other museums, community groups, heritage organizations, authors, students, and individuals who wanted to learn more about Transcona’s history through our historic newspapers, photographs, artifact and archival collections, and reference materials.
It is strongly encouraged to make appointments for research, as staffing is limited and we are occasionally offsite presenting education programs. This ensures that staff can gather associated materials and assist with research.
The Transcona Museum is temporarily closed to the public due to COVID-19. Please allow for some delay when requesting research information, as access to our collections will be limited at this time. We will update this information as the situation changes. Thank you.
Depending on your needs and the quality of the images requested, the Transcona Museum can offer digital copies of photographs and textual documents, provided there are no copyright restrictions. If you would like to review our archival holdings for research purposes, please contact the museum to make an appointment.
