Great place to take a break and see some local BC history, very inexpensive as well. A refurbished Caboose and the museum is the original train station built in 1914. The area has an interesting history and this is the place to learn about it!!

For the story buff, this is a must stop. Nice displays about the area's railway towns and Japanese internment camps. The trapper's cabin is a must see. Lots of history for a tiny village!

Check out this museum when you are in town for local history displays. It has a wonderful train that even runs through the washroom. Lots of local books for sale.

Really enjoyed this museum which has great historical stuff from the Fraser River and Mt. Robson areas and some really great train memorabilia. Good gifts too - nice local artist stuff!

A very well done museum utilizing a railway theme. Lots of unique objects, nicely displayed and presented, friendly staff and nice to see a smaller community supporting this.
