The Three Valley Gap is a great place to stop, take in some views, enjoy the scenery and marvel at the castle. The Ghost Town disappointed us on two aspects - the first is that it... read more

We were travelling from Calgary to Kewlona. Ghost town is on the way between Calgary (for 4 hours) and Kelowna (for 2.5 hours). So, this place is good to stop for a rest. This is the place inside mountains, with a lake and with a hotel where you can drink some vine and look at the lake. The town includes... More

I've watched this attraction develop for decades and finally stopped to check it out... what a pleasant surprise. 100 year old buildings that looked like they were still being used. An assay office with tools I remember using, a washing machine my mother used, clocks in a watchmaker shop that I remember repairing with my father, a watchmaker. The car... More

Loved this place this is my third visit. A real step back in time for the history buff or the ghost hunter.

Not really the "museum" types, but we're at Three Valley for the night, so....it was a grey drizzly afternoon, but off we went. We enjoyed every display. This attraction is so well done. The planning that has gone into this Ghost Town is amazing. The shops are well done and it's hard to take everything in...there is so much. The... More

Fantastic place with many little cottages, houses and shops that have been painstakingly relocated to this site. Lots of displays and collections not easily found elsewhere. A whole roundhouse with trains including a ghost train display was lots of fun for the kids. So many interesting things to see - it kept three generations amused for hours...make sure you leave...

We were driving towards Edmonton from Vancouver. The view was amazing when we saw the three valley gap. We stopped in the Ghost Town and were pleasantly surprised by how big the place actually was. It isn't actually a ghost town, but a bunch of old buildings which have a history to them all brought to this one place. While... More

Great story behind 3 Valley Gap and the area which comes to life in their Ghost Town during the historical 1800's gold rush with its pioneer buildings, saloon, jail, old trains & roundhouse, tribute to the Chinese Laundry, lake and river etc. Amazing...

The Three Valley Gap is a great place to stop, take in some views, enjoy the scenery and marvel at the castle. The Ghost Town disappointed us on two aspects - the first is that it isn't a real town, it is an assembly of buildings brought from else where, and secondly there was a lot of disarray in the...

We went later in the evening and by the time we got to the train turn around it was pouring rain and the sound was amplified in the tin building. This provided a very unique experience and everyone in my group was a little freaked out, especially my niece and nephew. Other than that it was a great stop with... More

Went there not really knowing what to expect. The buildings were interesting and give an understanding to the way things used to be. Went with our 7 & 5 yr old daughters and they loved it. Unfortunately, it was a rainy day but with the amount of time spent inside buildings, it wasn't a big deal and we had dressed... More
