Revelstoke was incorporated as a city in 1899. But the community was founded much earlier during the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) in 1885.
The Revelstoke Museum features an extensive photographic collection, devoted to lumbering, mining, farming, railroading and the early settlement of this mountain town. Two floors in the property have been dedicated to exhibits – interesting and educational. A heritage garden, area of archives and gift shop are also on-site.
A full calendar of events and children’s programs are offered. As well as a Heritage Cemetery Tour and Downtown Heritage Walk.
Open Monday through Friday, 10 am to 5 pm; Saturday 11 am to 5 pm.
Adults $5, Seniors & Teens $4, Family $12. Admission to Archives only is by donation.
