The Boundary Museum Society was established in 1958, and incorporated in 1980. From its inception until 2009, the Boundary Museum Society operated out of the downtown core of Grand Forks, BC. In 2009, the Boundary Museum moved into the former Fructova School, now called the Fructova Heritage Site. The Fructova Heritage Site was built by the Christian Communities of Universal Brotherhood (CCUB) Doukhobors in 1929 as a facility to teach English and academics to the Doukhobor children of the Boundary area. The school was in use until the late 1940's. The Boundary Museum currently features five larger exhibits - the Doukhobors, a schoolroom, local wildlife & environment, historic store in addition to several smaller exhibits on First Peoples, China town in Grand Forks, forestry, sports, and music. Exhibits change from time to time. You will also see a Doukhobor bread oven and perhaps be able to participate in bread making or other activities in the summer months.

Great little museum! They have a lot of artifacts and pictures of the early mining that took place around Grand Forks, as well as many items used by the early settlers in the area. Well worth a visit.

We visited this museum after learning about it at the Pride of the Valley Flour Mill exhibit down the road. It had several rooms of artifacts as well as historical buildings on the property. We visited on a Thursday when they bake bread with flour made at the mill in a traditional Doukabour wood fired oven. It tasted great and... More

The building was a beautiful piece of architecture. The staff were very friendly. I enjoyed the main floor history exhibit. It gives a good synopsis of the history of the area. The upstairs featured an art exhibit. It was well worth the time we spent there.

Worth the time to have a look at some history if the area. It covers life of the people and equipment they used. A great place for children to come and learn about how things used to be done with some hands on activities.

We used this as a spot on a Scavenger Hunt for the Coast Riders Motorcycle Club. The staff were most helpful and welcoming. Knowing we were coming, they put up a "Welcome" sign and laid on coffee for the riders. The displays are well laid out, and explain several aspects of the local history. In addition there are some neat... More

A wonderful place to explore and discover the history of the beautiful country. The day we visited with our Niece and young family, they were making bread in the outdoor brick oven and making butter to go on it.
