Community Waterfront Heritage Centre

The Community Waterfront Heritage Centre is located at the harbour in Owen Sound's former 1930's CN Railway Station. The museum displays all sorts of historical artifacts relating to the marine and railway industries that helped to shape the city as a major Great Lakes port. Exquisite models of ships adorn the exhibits and a full size railway dining car awaits inspection by visitors. From mid-June to mid-August, the site hosts Harbour Nights Sunday Concerts with a variety of live entertainment in summer.

The famous Ancaster Tug is displayed beside the building and visitors can tour the waterfront trail that runs the length of the harbour.

From May 29 to October 10, 2016 the Centre hosts a special exhibit entitled The Art of the Sailor, which depicts artifacts unique to marine culture such as fancy knot work, scrimshaw etching and tattoos.
