“Historically Rich Museum / Art Gallery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

Nelson has a rich history for such a comparatively new community (115 years) and Touchstones does a fine job of giving an overview of its past. The art gallery features world-class artists as well as an occasional opportunity for local artists to exhibit.

“Touchstones - a museum, a gallery, a gift shop and an archive collection...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

This official Museum Gallery in Nelson BC has a wonderful historical exhibit - much more engaging than the regular "look at something and read something next to it" variety. It also has two lovely galleries with rotating shows and a gift shop selling locally made arts. Go there.
