“A lot of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

A lot of BC history occurred in Greenwood and this small museum does an excellent job of informing us about it. Especially the displays regarding the unfortunate Canadian decision to confiscate the belongings and remove persons of Japanese origin from the west coast to the interior of BC and Canada after Dec 8, 1941. Greenwood deserves a mention as an example of the kind of caring which Canada is now so well known for.

“Worth a Trip Off the Beaten Track!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

The little town of Greenwood was one of the Japanese-Canadain internment locations during WWII. This little museum brings to the present much of the environment of the early 1940's and is well worth a couple of hourse. The staff are knowledgable and are happy to chat with you. And don't leave Greenwood before also visiting the old City Hall which is a block away and preserves the court room and jail of another era which will take you back in time.
