“Fernie heritage and flavour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a wonderful view into Fernie's past, with great stories about some of the town's citizens and goings on. The exhibitions are well displayed and interesting, the volunteers are helpful and well informed. The gallery on the second floor is a nice surprise with the offering of contemporary artists displayed. Well worth a visit.

“Discover the fernie story”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

We always like to touch base with the historical side of places we visit so we're glad to see Fernie had a museum. Great that it was open on a Sunday. The exhibitions and stories were interesting and you felt like you needed walking through Fernies past. Particularly liked the feature stories on some of Fernies pioneers. The walk Fernie book is worth buying as it guides you around the town with a focus on Fernies significant buildings.

“Like History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

When we went to have a look inside, not all the exhibits were finished, but it is a great place to learn about Fernie and the Elk Valley. Great job on the whole museum.

“Great small town experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

We paid a visit with our Granddaughter and were not disapponted in the least. When in The Kootenays with their incredible beauty one gets caught up in the history and lore and this Museum is an excellent example of a small town community who cares about their past. Highly recommended......informative volunteer on duty,
