Maple Ridge Museum
The centerpiece of the Maple Ridge Museum is its model railway diorama, which depicts in miniature local train routes of the 1920s and '30s, such as the CPR (Canadian Pacific Railway) Line between Ruskin and Hammond. The basement display is comparable to the splendid Great Canadian Railway exhibit at Miniature World in Victoria. Outside the museum is a restored 1944 CPR caboose.
Other eclectic exhibits document the local history of railway logging and Maple Ridge's passion for baseball.
