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.

This is a great place to learn about the history in the area. This was a rip roaring mining town 120 years ago with its own smelter. Nothing like the sleepy little town you see today!

Worth a stop in the self-described Canada's Smallest City. While in the area to investigate mining history, we found the displays well done and the staff knowledgable about townspeople to contact for more info.
