Hidden Gem

We had pitifully low expectations and shouldn't have. There is lots to learn in this little gem of a museum. Its worth the time.

We learned a lot about the ranching history of this area and the way they lived. It is incredible how much life has changed here in the last 100 years!.

This is the first homestead home in the valley and it's well maintained and the curators have done a nice job of gathering local history--both Native American and Euro-American--and displaying it in this museum. It takes maybe an hour to read all of the information but it is worth it.

Good displays of history of the Frazer Valley and the evolution of travel to the area beginning with the Utes through trappers, stage coach and railroad and highway. Enjoyed the display about Dr. Susan's early years in the valley. Helpful woman overseeing the museum. Entry fee is $5 or $4 for seniors.

Really well done little museum that helps you understand some history of the Winter Park area. Give yourself about an hour to go through the whole property; a little longer if you are a true history buff.

What a treasure! This is indeed the biggest little museum and so worth the small fee to visit. The manager, Christie and volunteer, David, were extremely hospitable and knowledgeable. They are wonderful ambassadors for the Fraser Valley and this wonderful collection of artifacts from days gone by. Of special note, anyone interested in the life and times Doctor Susan Anderson...

This museum looks small on the outside but it opens into a large space with several rooms. There are excellent exhibitions on Doc Susie, President Eisenhower, and the Ute Indians. The displays and information are surprisingly good. There is a gift shop with great art by local artisans & wonderful rare books. For kids, the museum has an interactive education... More
