Very well done museum, price to get in was reasonable - cash only. The gal working there was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. What a great little town!

Because of time constraints, we only had a short time to spend at this museum but I highly recommend a stop here. The price of admission was low and the people working here were extremely friendly and very willing to share extensive information on the area. We'll be back!

We had heard about this museum from friends and decided on a trip through Greenwood to check it out and we certainly were not disappointed. The museum is full of interesting displays and it took us about an hour to walk through. The entrance fee is minimal and certainly worth the stop. I would go through again on my next... More

This smallest city in Canada has a fascinating history. It is described very well at the Museum/Information Centre and it worth the stop to learn about what you see virtually across the street. At one time the city was dominated by a huge smelter and filled with miners and their families, nearly all gone now. So stop and stretch your... More

Nice little local museum, in the back of the tourist information office. Shows the history of the area, particularly regarding mining, forestry and the Japanese internment during WWII. There's an interesting connection between Greenwood and a member of the Jesse James gang, which is outlined here. Admission is $4 for adults. There's a washroom in the tourist information office.

This little Meuseum has a surprising amount of very fastinating Historical items in it. We found it very informative and even somewhat surprising to read about notorious Wanted 'gangs' from the posters, learning about the History of the first Japanese Internement Camp during the war years, ....they even have a stack of 'Wooden Checks'...something I'd never heard of before.
