Open for the season! The Kwinitsa Railway Station Museum was opened

As British Columbia's restart program continues to move forward and Prince Rupert starts to open up for tourism once again, one of the more popular stops for visitors has reopened for the season, with the Museum of Northern BC reopening the Kwinitsa Railway Station Museum earlier this month.

The Museum located adjacent to Rotary Waterfront Park provides a glimpse into the arrival and importance of the Grand Trunk Railroad to the development of the Northwest corridor is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 9 to 4 with a one hour closure from Noon to 1 PM for lunch.

The measures the Museum has  put in place as part of their COVID response include:

Hand sanitizer on entry and exit
Extra cleaning routines during the day 
All staff and guests will be required to wear masks - if you don’t have one, we will make one available for $2 
Social distancing will be ensured by limiting the number of people in the museum at any one time.

Booking ahead will make for a more rewarding experience and allow you to view the site on your own timetable; to reserve your spot you can call or text the Museum at 778-984-8958

Those not familiar with Prince Rupert can access the Kwinitsa Museum
on the waterfront by way of Bill Murray Drive off of Fist Avenue West
