Fall / Winter 2018 Hours

We are open one day a week – Tuesdays, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Please note our policy regarding the need for an appointment to carry out research in the museum.

Archives research and viewing
The museum has very limited staffing so if you wish to visit the archives or research other information in the museum, please call ahead to book an appointment. We are open just one day a week in the winter, Tuesdays, and are very busy with museum visitors and programs in the other seasons. This will allow us to give all the help and guidance you need.
Please call (250) 342-9769 and leave a message or write to [email protected] to set up an appointment for your project.
