The mandate of the Prince George Railway & Forestry Museum (PGRFM) is to preserve, interpret, and restore the history of local railway companies and the industries and culture that grew from their establishment in and around Prince George and region. The PGRFM has been collecting equipment and artifacts since 1984 and has been open to the public in its current location, adjacent to the Canadian National Railway (CNR) yards in Prince George, BC, since 1986.
Since it's inception, the Prince George Railway & Forestry Museum has been adding to this archival collection through donations from railway companies, company employees, family members of railway workers, museum volunteers, and private individuals. The Prince George Railway & Forestry Museum Society Collection was transferred as a whole to the Northern BC Archives in 2002.
