They have art display by some very talented high school students. There is also historical pictures of the Alaskan Highway as it was being constructed. Great gift shop too. The entry price is by donation.

Whether you like art or grain elevator. Stop and visit. Being an engineer, I really like the old grain elevator over the art. But others in my party liked the art. Yes, I would visit again.

We enjoyed to gallery....being from the prairies the restored elevator was especially interesting. The art was beautiful! A story of building the Alaska highway in black and white was awesome!

The old elevator is pretty neat but the gallery has very little art in it. Maybe they were just making space for an exibit but the walls were pretty much bare.

The Dawson Creek is a good place to view work from local artists as well as purchase locally made products. Inside the old grain elevator close to the Mile 0 in Dawson Creek

Tremendous assortment of art and historical photos. Souvenirs available as well. A look into the the unrestored grain elevator shows what it looked like back in the day. The elevator annex was converted into the art gallery and is a joy to walk about.

There is a wide range of art in the gallery. They also have many photos of the building of the Alaska highway. Worth a visit.

This was just one of those delightful stops that surprised us. It's a wonderful way to preserve and use an old building, while displaying local artists work. We enjoyed winding our way up, viewing a wide variety of styles. They had a lovely little gift...More

An impressive adaptive reuse of an historic building, this wooden grain elevator was moved to this location next to visitors' center and museum. Displaying local art and crafts for sale and a small permanent collection. The gift shop has local crafts and souvenirs, a nicer...More
