  • The Archive's Voice

    June 10, 2018 to September 2, 2018

    The discoveries that were made during the preparation of this activity enable us to shed some light on the towns that make up the MRC de Roussillon to give you a glimpse of the riches that our railway heritage has bequeathed to our local regional county municipality. The train enables us to retrace the social, religious, political, and cultural elements of the MRC. It provides an opportunity to discover, or to rediscover, certain historical elements that remain embedded in the daily lives of its residents. We therefore proudly present The Archive’s Voice: Tales from Roussillon. Every Sunday in english at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

  • Return of Railway Troops

    July 14, 2018 to July 15, 2018

    One hundred years ago, the First World War was coming to an end. The Canadian rail troops  were starting to come back from Europe. The reconstitution of a military camp near Barrington Station with its small group of soldiers and nurse tells this story.

    For this event, the museum will highlight three railway vehicles related to this period. The public will be able to take a ride on the TSR 8 streetcar, which was used in Toronto from 1895 to 1918. On the other hand, the MTC 997 streetcar, presented in building 5 and which was in use in the Montreal area until 1918, will be open to the public for this occasion. The year 1918 also marks the commissioning of the Mount Royal Tunnel. Visitors will be able to see the CN 6711 electric locomotive which is presented in the Grande Galerie of the Angus Pavilion.

    The activities will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
