Owner description: As a hub for tourism, Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village is home to the visitor information centre, Gift Shop, and a Western Canadian frontier village with 24 heritage cabins and two museum buildings filled with intriguing artifacts. The Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village was established in 1966, and was intended to preserve the area's vibrant pioneer heritage. Over the years, the efforts of countless volunteers and employees has seen the museum grow to include 26 buildings and 24,000+ artifacts. Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village is an outdoor heritage facility. Visitors are able to walk directly into any of the historic buildings, and view the artifacts, which are displayed openly.The open concept and self guided museum means you also free to wander through six acres of beautiful gardens, including a pond and waterfall (summer) and large community garden area. Each of the buildings in the Village is authentic, restored, and furnished with period furniture. Artifacts and everyday tools used by the owners and inhabitants of that time, are displayed in each building. The history is not roped off or preserved behind glass.

What an awesome history of a great little town. They are lucky someone has worked so hard to preserve a record of their heritage

Very well laid out and interesting attraction, enjoy the gardens (if the weather is fine), friendly and helpful staff.
Get a guided tour from the curator if he is available.
