This little museum is in the middle of town just off the highway. It is also the visitors centre. There is a tremendous amount of history regarding this little town. There are numerous displays throughout the museum and there are lots of booklets and explanations of what you see viewing. Well worth the 1 hour we spent there.

We were driving from Nelson to Merritt and wanted to stretch our legs, then suddenly the historic town of Greenwood emerged along the highway! We LOVE history and this little town will not disappoint you. The museum is a true hidden gem and highly recommended to stop and visit! There are so many, beautifully arranged displays to enjoy and learn from! For a minimum fee you step back in time and experience life in Greenwood’s history and then you step back outside and re-live the history in it’s gorgeous buildings!

A larger than typical, better designed than typical local history museum. Don't miss the "assay office" exhibit, a free-standing building next to the museum. There are also large (mostly mining) artifacts outside adjacent to the parking area, and some in a park across the street.
