"Spend a day, experience a century! Discover a century of vintage automobiles in our "state of the art" transportation museum and then stroll through our Historic 1800's Village, drop in at the Windsor Wood Carving Museum located in the basement of our 1885 United Church or take a tour of our Emergency Medical Services Museum. So much to see! So much to do!"
Henry Ford would have felt right at home her at the Canadian Transportation Museum & Heritage Village. In fact, in addition to the numerous Model Fords currently on display in our Transportation Museum, we have a beautiful pump organ on display in our 1889 Miner Homestead, which was a gift from Thomas Edison and Henry Ford to Jack and Leona Miner. Henry Ford is said to have spent many Sunday breakfasts at the Miner Homestead.
We serve many Sunday breakfasts in our 50's diner and have unique items for sale in our gift shop. Whether you plan to make a day of it, or you are just passing through, the Canadian Transportation Museum is one of those hidden treasures you just can't afford to miss out on! The museum houses original and fully restored hallmark vehicles from the 19th and 20th century, from horse drawn wagons to a Dodge Viper; many vehicles that were made right here in South-western Ontario. Guided tours are available during regular hours.
