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.

Creston history in display
Aug 2021
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.

A surprisingly wonderful stop!

Small town? Yup. Museum? Yup. Boring? NOT!!!

An amazing and well-thought through venue that appeals to the whole family! Excellent prices. The staff are knowledgeable, attentive and engaging.

We must have taken 50 photos of various aspects of this museum!

From the front gates you cannot see what treasures and history are so lovingly tucked behind! Loads of things to learn about, view, see and touch throughout the property. Indoor and outdoor exhibits and we were lucky enough to have a fabulous young lady give us a guided tour!

A delightful way to spend an hour or two, either on your own, with your family or in a group.

We were delighted with this fabulous almost-hidden gem!

The Creston Museum contains many quirky and interesting exhibits. It's not the same-old, same-old kind of experience. Our guide added a great deal to our visit, with humorous and thorough observations.

History came alive for us
Aug 2018 • Family
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.

I loved the old tools and machinery that were set up like still being used. The rooms set up for all the old bedrooms and kitchen was amazing
