Smaller, diverse museum. Giving a good look at the history, the people, the industries and world events effects on this outpost in the mountains. Also a great, small exhibit on skiing, including a first for me, reference to "Norwegian Snow Shoes"

...much better than many small museums I've visited. Well laid out, great and knowledgeable staff, good location and gives a really good overview of the area and the influence of the railroad on the history. Well done.

We seem to stop by here everytime we stay in Revelstoke. There's a lot of history for such a small city, and they do an amazing job of documenting it. There are some pretty neat pieces in the gift shop too.
