The Pouce Coupe Museum is proud to display its long and diverse history by incorporating four buildings into its tour! Join us on a journey through time as we weave through the Heritage House, Trapper's Cabin, Caboose and the original NAR Train Station. With items on display from every aspect of an early settler's life, you will enjoy the sites of a homestead, doctor's office, church, schoolroom and general store. Everything on display at the museum is locally donated and many of our artifacts date back to 1889 when the first settler in our area filed a homestead claim.

The museum is currently raising funds to restore the caboose; any donation will be appreciated.

The Pouce Coupe Museum is wheelchair accessible and with a park and playground across the street, it makes for a great lunch stop!
