Tourists will find this Important CPR junction of interest, as it is where the trains headed south for the smelter at Trail and the gold fields in Rossland. I particularly enjoyed the exterior of the building and the caboose. Great for train buffs.

My boyfriend and I stopped in here one day after class. We heard great things about the museum. This place gives you a small taste of the local CPR history.

So lots of old stuff in this museum! Not enough time to take it all in! Old Harley Davidson worthy of the picture! Not too many items for sale. Just neat stuff to look at!

The artifacts donated to this museum and different insulators from the power lines in days of yore was a real eye opener. The deep diving suit used by the early pioneers was scary, to think they trusted this to keep them safe,

From the outside, this museum looks small, but it is packed with a history punch! So much local history, photos, and artifacts are in store for the history buff, and you won't be disappointed. There is also a gift shop filled with arts and crafts...More
