Museums

The Rossport Caboose Museum offers a unique insight to the fishing, mining and railway heritage of the North Shore.



The Schreiber Railway Museum is located in Schreiber, Ontario, a 15 minute drive east of Rossport. This museum highlights the community’s background as one of the oldest railway communities on the North Shore of Lake Superior. It is the home of many Canadian Pacific antiques, documents and treasures. It contains the history of both Schreiber and the Canadian Pacific Railway.


Schreiber was first founded in the 1880’s as a railway construction camp. Originally named Isbester’s Landing, the town later was named after a railway engineer, Sir Collingwood Schreiber. It became a terminal for the C.P.R. The Schreiber Railway Museum is a must see for all railway enthusiasts, history lovers, and anyone with ties to the town of Schreiber.
