Interesting for adults and kids. Touring around the below deck area they even have taped sounds for the cooks and chickens etc., kids love it.

Very well preserved piece of local history, very much worth a visit. A deep history in the old mining town of Kaslo.

“No small boat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Until you actually see one up close, it is hard to imagine the size and capacity of these historic sternwheelers and the work they did.

“A piece of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

I'd seen the boat from the road but never went inside before. It's WELL worth the price of admission. The boat is in beautiful shape and as a bonus it's all fitted out as if it were on a voyage! Cars, luggage, staterooms with clothes, tons of artifacts that bring the times to you in a personal way. It was fun looking in all the little nooks and crannies and seeing what was in them. Great fun and very informative!
