Price is by donation, was kind of surprised by this, but give what you feel is appropriate. We strolled around checking out the stuffed animals and artifacts. It is a little hidden gem that is worth taking the time to appreciate. Glad we went.

The collection of artifacts is really quite suprising for such a small museum. It encompasses a wide range of Vernon's history with exhibits themed around periods of the city's development. The other great thing is the photo archive which is searchable (not super great but usable) and they have a variety of options to print your selected photo.

A great place for history buffs as well as inquisitive young minds! This was my second trip and my grand-childrens' "eleventieth" trip. Always interesting.

The artifacts were excellent; I especially like doing the taxidermy . The cougar and bobcat were the best in my estimation ; the owls were great too . The large clock was interesting ; still usable .

This is a fantastic place to visit in your spare time, this place is really nice and moderately sized for a town like Vernon, if you have any questions about Vernon or want to know more about the history then the staff will be more than happy to help you.

I had the great privledge to be one of the parent escorts to my granddaughters kindergarten class to the museum. What a fantastic time we all had. We were greeted at the door by our resident tour guide Mr. Bowman who did an amazing job speaking to the kids. He had some very good hands on items to pass around the class and was very knowledgeable about the museum and displays. We spent approx. 1 1/2 hours inside.
This Vernon gem is well worth the time to stop in to view the many displays and exibits from our past. Will definately go again. Admission is by donation.

This isn't a huge museum but one of my favorite. They have a lot packed in and it is all very well displayed. My family has donated a lot to the museum and the staff have always be outstanding. They never have turned away questions or help which was one of the reasons we have donated a lot of local heritage. My family settled in Vernon in the 1880's and the museum have always appreciated our history. Well worth the visit.
