Description: 

The Fort la Reine Museum is located on the east edge of Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. Dedicated to preserving and showcasing the history of the Canadian prairies, the museum consists of over 25 buildings and thousands of artifacts including native, military, and agriculture related pieces.

The various buildings located on the site were designed to illustrate the lifestyle of early pioneers to the Fort la Reine area while settling the Canadian Prairies.

The Fort la Reine Museum is also the resting place of two very important rail cars in Canadian history. The first is the actual rail car that William Van Horne used during the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway west of Winnipeg during the 1880's and the second is one of only two surviving Superintendent's cars which was used as a base for managing railway business.
