“Great small town experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We paid a visit with our Granddaughter and were not disapponted in the least. When in The Kootenays with their incredible beauty one gets caught up in the history and lore and this Museum is an excellent example of a small town community who cares about their past. Highly recommended......informative volunteer on duty,

“Boring”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Nothing special here. Very boring. Figured we would just check it out... There wasn't really anything to check out. A little bit of info but that's it.

“Excellent Little Museum”

You should take a visit to this little museum if you like museums and a bit of history. Learn about Fernie past and present. It is well presented and the staff are really nice.

“An awesome introductory to the town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

A lovely little place right on the main strip of town. A must for when you get there. You can get all your maps and info packages for free as well as a bit of local history. Spend an extra 30 minutes inside and really get a feel for how much has happened in this little dream town. Talk to the staff, who are super awesome, and they will give you some secrets for the area! Such as Lucier hot springs for Silver Lake.

“Great history of Fernie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

This little museum has fantastic history of the town and the ski hill. Take some time to learn about days gone by. I loved the history of the ski hill and the artifacts they've been able to collect. The location is conveniently located on the downtown strip.
