The Bell families passion for preserving history is very apparent here. We have been to several historic villages, and while this isn't the best we've seen it's very good.

On our way back to V.C. from Lake Louise drove via Rogers Pass. So much history here for all age groups, all the buildings were transported here from the local area ( instead of being demolished) great foresight by the owners. Yes there are are other "museums" but this one would certainly be one of the best. Worth a 3... More

Ok... if your kids are driving you nuts on your drive from AB to BC, this is a good place to stop. You can take a bathroom break, get some food and walk around the old deserted town. Not too interesting but if it makes the kids stop saying the dreaded "are we there yet" chant it is worth every... More

So many things to see a cool look into Canada's past. Had driven past many times we are so happy we stopped and we will go back. Stayed at the hotel and it was a nice break on our drive to the coast. Anyone who enjoys history will have a great time here. Easy access to Revelstoke too and it... More

Liked the old cars, trucks and trains. Also liked the displays of life in the buildings as if we were seeing people from those days.

We spent the morning in awe! After being welcomed at the entrance by a fellow who gave a short history of the place, map in hand, away we went. The town was mostly buildings that had been moved to this location, some having been taken apart board by board and reconstructed on the site. School houses, a Chinese laundry, Trapper... More

Here's a lodge, on a lake, between the highway and the railroad that is full of history. For the railfan there is all kinds of display items including having the largest working turntable in North America. And there is a ghost town that explains and shows the history of the area in some detail. Some of the stuff isn't that... More

It's been about 20 years since we last stopped at 3 Valley Gap a few miles west of Revelstoke. What a pleasant surprise at all the historic displays and the old time village. There is just so much to see since the last time we were here. We spent over 3 hours and I am sure we could have spent... More

This was better than I expected. There were a lot more buildings there than I thought when I saw it from outside. It being the end of the season, it was literally like a ghost town. There was no one else there! I feel it's more of a heritage museum than "ghost town". They have loads of artefacts, perhaps too... More

This was the best $12.00 each we have ever spent. This attraction is amazing and well worth the time to stop and visit. The collection is very extensive and you can take either a self guided tour with a map or the guided tour with a guide who is very knowledgable and friendly. the collectables are unbelieveable and the photo...
