Amazing detail. Unbelievable time and effort put in. The conductor in the museum was really personable and played scavenger hunt with the kids to make it even more fun. So worth the value.

You are correct we are located in the Industrial Park and because the Town of Osoyoos has a very strict sign by-law in place, we are unable to erect signs on third party properties to make it easier to find us. We have ample parking...More
