The self guided tour took less than one hour but was an excellent introduction to the history of the area as well as how apples are processed and get to your super markets over the years. Well worth the stop. Gift shop with GREAT apples...More

This museum is downtown close to other museums. There is no charge. It is free and donations are accepted. Interesting to see the wines and gift shop is on the premises.

What was interesting was nice large photos on the wall showing workers with clear expression on their faces and the dressing too. The machinery they used for cutting fruits was also very interesting and have never seen them before.

This would be a great place to take a child to. It has displays to showcase the BC fruit industry. Weather fruit on your table or wine for your pleasure. I enjoyed it, and loved that the FEE, was by donation.

If you want to look at apple boxes and apple peeling machines, this is your place. Otherwise, it's a bore.

We visited there on Aug 25. It is a tiny museum. But it is worth to spend 20 mins and learn how the old time orchard farmers are making living.
