Northern Alberta Railways (NAR) Station Tourist Information Centre
Located in the historic Peace River NAR Station, last of its kind in northern Alberta.
Welcome to the NAR Station Tourist Information Centre
The NAR Station, built 1916, serves as the tourist information hub for the community. Here you will find brochures, maps, and information on many of the local area attractions, as well as those for Alberta, northern British Columbia and the North West Territories. While you are visiting this provincially designated historic resource, explore the period rooms furnished as they would have been in the station’s early days (1920s-1930s), as well as pick up some resources to serve as your guide to the Peace Region. Events are held at the station throughout the summer and autumn. Visit the museum webpage for more information!
The NAR Station is open to the public Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, starting May 23, 2022. Further information and assistance can be found at the Peace River Museum, Archives and Mackenzie Centre, Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
