We (two adults) had a fantastic visit here over the weekend. The staff are all super friendly and helpful, and an extra shout out goes to the super knowledgeable gentleman working in the General Store museum who must have spent almost an hour telling us all about the site, the products in the store and the history of the place. It was very interesting to go back in time with him and his passion for the subject was clear. It's impressive to see that the buildings are still in such good condition after so many decades. Next time we're in the area we will give ourselves even more time to explore the historic site. We highly recommend visiting.

As a charitable non profit we reply on funding for summer students to open seven days a week. Unfortunately this year the funding was cut so we had to close two days a week. And good news, mid August we did start a painting project on all three historic buildings. You probably saw the work of work crews hand scraping the buildings, so yes, at the moment it looks pretty bad. But soon it will be looking like new again. Through September and October we will open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Then we will close for the season until next year.

This was a great little museum with friendly and knowledgeable staff. The displayed artifacts within the general store were really amazing and our kids really enjoyed when the guide showed them old tin toys kids used to play with. The museum structure really feels like time stood still. It was a nice way to spend a couple hours and learn a little piece of bc history.

we just popped in for ice cream, it was ice cream, so it was good! Birchwood Dairy ice cream, one was licorice, one was salted caramel, the salted caramel was the favorite. Definitely stop in for ice cream.

What a neat place. Check it out when there may be an interpreter on site. Was a great little community that you would stop by rail when that was the way to travel up the valley from the city or from the valley to the city.
