Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback. The Fernie Information Center offers an extensive range of information of activities to enjoy while in Fernie. From breathtaking hiking and biking trails, to waterfalls, rafting, golf, distillers, restaurants, aerial park, arts station, markets, concerts, kids’ camps, tours and much more. Our Fernie Museum, and the building itself, an important example of Fernie's rich history, boasts a main floor exhibit with a large emphasis on mining as it is very important to Fernie’s history, as well as ever-changing exhibition gallery on the 2nd floor. We are regretful to hear you did not have the positive experience in Fernie that so many other visitor’s get to experience. Thank you once again for your comments, we hope we have been able to clarify a few things, and we hope you will give Fernie another try!
