There are a number of interpretive centres, museums and heritage sites to explore in Prince George, as well as heritage walking tours.

Central BC Railway & Forestry Museum

The Central BC Railway & Forestry Museum provides a truly authentic sense of Prince George's railway history and the importance of forestry to the community. The museum is interesting at any season, though probably best visited in the spring, summer and fall months as many of the exhibits are outside. There are authentically decorated buildings, a number of different train displays, and other machines. The most remarkable exhibit is the Nechako Coach, a fully adorned train, complete with a functioning kitchen and dining room area. It was built in 1913 and operated by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway until 1976.
