Small informative museum. It’s not a must see attraction but is worth the stop if your traveling & need time out of the car.

Enjoyed our time in the museum, found it quite interesting. Didn't realize how much oil exploration took place in Fort St. John. Pictures of the Alaskan Highway construction were great. The hardships people endured were hard to imagine. We liked it's!

Great museum, especially for the $6 admission: much more content than I had expected for the price. Friendly staff who were happy to ask questions, and loads of things in the gift stuff. Definitely worth stopping in.
