COVID-19 Closure

The health and safety of our ECRM community is of the utmost importance to us, and as such in light of recent announcements from the Ontario Chief Medical Officer of Health and others we are taking steps to prevent the risks and spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The Museum building will be closed as of 5 pm March 17th and will not be open to the public until further notice. The health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers is of top priority to us in these challenging times. We will continue to take guidance from our public health officials regarding the duration of this closure.

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time. As our staff move between work locations please communicate with us by email and check our website and Facebook page for updates.

  • Our history


  • The railway has been part of St. Thomas since the completion of the London and Port Stanley Railway in 1856 and since then, more than 26 railways have passed through the city. This provided the foundation for the birth of St. Thomas due to the provision of employment and, subsequently, the income to sustain the community.
