About
We tell great stories. We can explain how Creston got its wacky time zone. We can tell you about the steamship that became a tractor (sort of), the first airplane to land in Creston, and the teacher who refused to be fired. Speaking of "great" stories, there's "The Great Railway Race" and the "Great Creston Bank Robbery." And have you heard the one about the imaginary student in Grade Thirteen? Really, we're not making this up. Why would we? Truth is so much better than fiction. We can even help you tell the greatest story of all: your own. So come on in. After all, there's no time like the present to discover the past.

I stopped in today with half an hour to closing and I was really impressed by this place. I think they've done an amazing Job for a small town. I love how they used an old stone house to hold the majority of museum and I like how they spread their exhibit several several small buildings. They have done a very good job of capturing the unique farming history of Creston. I didn't take the Ford over to her myself but I watched a young man give a fantastic tour to a couple who really seemed to enjoy it. I will go back as they have set the bar high for a small town

We were treated to a personal guide, at no cost, who was able to give us anecdotal information on almost every aspect of the museum. This was one of the most complete museums, with lots and lots of artifacts, that I have experienced, and it was amazing to know the history of the small town of Creston, BC.

What an amazing outdoor display, so much to see! We ran out of time before we really even got to visit the incredible indoor displays, so we will have to go back!

Large outdoor display of hugh farming and mining equipments. Small classroom in a cute house. Indoor displays of old shop, house and history of Creston are as interesting.
