Town of Channel-Port aux Basques
Railway Heritage Center
Examples of Channel-Port aux Basques' long and colourful heritage in the transportation and fishery industry can be seen at the Railway Heritage Museum. Two special historical artifacts at the museum are the "Astrolabes', late medieval navigational instruments dating back to the 1600's discovered by Port aux Basques resident Wayne Mushrow on ship wrecks off of Isle aux Morts.
The Railway Heritage Center reflects the voyages that began over 100 years ago and takes a walk back in time to recapture the importance of the railway, fishery and ferry service in Newfoundland's history.
