Went to the museum searching for information around grandfather and grandmother dating back to the 1800's. Spent 3 hours reading through files and files of great information, exactly what we were looking for. Absolutely amazed at this museum's ability to put together so many valuable bits of history. The volunteers are dedicated and caring individuals who obviously love their work,... More

Lots of local info, enthusiastic staff. City Hall worth touring with museum staff. Lots of info on one of Western Canadas earliest cities. They did a great job of researching the history of John Jarrette's history and ties to the infamous James Gang!!

Great Museum with lots of different sections. They even have examples of fluorescent minerals. The film Snowflakes falling on Cedar was filmed here and there are some great photos of the filming in town. Went on the drive to view the old sections of Phoenix which no longer exists. from the museum just note the numbers are reversed.

A small museum (to match the small town) but very keen and helpful staff. It was well worth the visit. I wish we had more of these.

The small admission fee was well worth while. The history of mining in the area and the dispersal of Japanese Canadians during WWII are well presented. One display on marriages collected photos of happy couples over a period of 100 years.Well worth a stop in Greenwood.

A very small museum that is well presented with staff that knows what is there and gives you an insight in the past via exhibits and artifacts. $3.00 per person is worth the stop allow 45 minutes

Stop in this little place as we went for a motorcycle ride - very interesting -- little known fact about the mining & Japanese in the community - didn't realize just how much mining was around the area - lots of fun facts

It only took about a half hour to see the museum, but it was worth the trip. The little town of Greenwood is a phtographers dream.

The museum completely captures the essence of Greenwood's up and down history. The boom days of the 1890's to 1918 are very well presented. It certainly helps to have a humongous tailings pile with abandoned mine structures just down the street. Plus, Greenwood's city centre still comprises many of the buildings from that era. Greenwood's decline through the thirties to... More
