Its free for kids and relatively inexpensive for adults. Its got a lot of activities and displays for everyone and gives kids a definite feel for what it was like in the 1800's at this historical site.

I love history, it’s always fascinating seeing how things develop. This location takes you from the start of fort Langley and shows you how the trains made this town. Very interesting and worth stopping by!
