“History!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

Too bad this little museum isn't open more! We did plan ahead so staff could help us look in some old newspapers about a great uncle who had a shop in Princeton in 1918. Robin found the info and photo copied it for us. (Thanks, Robin) We wandered the museum and they had a bit of everything displayed. Most interesting was the log cabin and furnishings. As donations are accepted, please leave a few loonies so that they can continue their work. I'd guess not over an hour is enough time to see all.....then head to Thomasina's for coffee and toast...................

“geology”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Nice small museum with a variety of historical items.
We liked the geology exhibit the best: fossils, iridescent stones and geodes. They even had a secret room with a black light. Cool!

“Cute Museum in a quaint town- Fantastic Florescent Rock Display”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

This is a cute museum in a quaint town. Great place to learn about the history of Princeton and the gems, minerals found in the area. Loved the beautiful florecent rock display in their black room. Amazed at all the old displays. The admission is by donation and the front desk staff was very helpful and informative. She guided us to the nearest KVR trail tunnel and the Red Ochre Bluffs along the Smilkameen river.

“Very Educational and informative.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Do visit this Museum if you are in town. This place is educational well preserved. The fossils and early age telephone and Native history is something we should all be proud off and relish
