A museum... and so much more... for you to explore!

MODEL TRAIN EVENT

This year's Model Train Event on Sunday, July 14 will feature the newly expanded Lionel model train room! 

There is a new 1950’s style layout of Lionel O scale, as well as a mini N scale layout, both with running trains. In addition, four of the five main scenic areas on the original layouts have been upgraded with the addition of 12 beautiful scratch built structures by Don Eastman (Master Model Railroader) of Sarnia.

And, there will even be some trains that the visitors can ‘drive’!

Check the Model Train Event page for details.

Welcome to Moore Museum, Mooretown, Ontario

With 12 historic and exhibit buildings, Moore Museum offers something to engage everyone’s interest.  Spend an hour or two exploring all we have to offer…
Take a stroll around our heritage village and discover the life and work of the past:

  • see the tools of the trade in the blacksmith shop, job printing press shop and harness shop.
  • explore our community’s agricultural roots with intriguing displays of antique farm implements.  
  • understand the valuable link the railroad provided for the early residents of our area as you visit the former Mooretown railroad station and the wooden caboose, furnished and equipped for the train’s next departure.  
  • appreciate modern medicine as you view early 20th century doctors’ equipment and pharmaceutical remedies.  
  • discover the differences and similarities of education over the years in the one-room schoolhouse.
  • realize the challenges of work on the Great Lakes waterway through models, equipment and photographs in the marine room.
  • learn about the lifestyles of past generations in the log cabin and Victorian cottage.

A new highlight which opened in 2013 is the Lionel model train exhibit.  The travelling display used by the Lionel company to promote their products forms the basis of this exhibit room.  Visitors are able to run the "S", "O" and "G" gauge trains by push button and a number of animated features can also be operated.  The whole family will enjoy this engaging new display!
