The Revelstoke Museum is quite possibly the best museum in the BC Interior, with a great balance of artifacts, images, and interpretation. The new exhibit about avalanches is outstanding and really helps you appreciate the drive through nearby Rogers Pass and Glacier National Park. Don't miss the upstairs, where there is yet more to see. Also, the gift shop has... More

If you are in Revelstoke - it's just off the Trans Canada highway #1 this is well worth the visit. Modest entry fee but well worth it. Great displays and one senses a high degree of civic pride in the museum and the town.

We dropped into this little museum, mostly to check out the gift shop. But the museum itself was quite interesting, showing what Revelstoke was like during the old days. We really liked what the gift shop had to offer, particular with it's retro posters, shirts and patches. Looked for these things everywhere and found them here!

As a museum professional, I have visited many museums. The Revelstoke Museum is one of the best. Excellent exhibits and friendly, helpful staff. Keep up the good work. Always look forward to seeing what Cathy English and her team are doing next.

Very interesting museum right downtown. The building itself is heritage, and the exhibits are set up very well and some are "interactive" ie: an old kitchen that you can browse through. My 6 year old daughter and I loved it. As we are part time residents of Revelstoke the local history is fascinating. Great gift store. And kids under 12... More

I’ve visited this museum many times over the past several years, and it keeps getting better. It has lots of natural light and a variety of displays and exhibits. One of the most striking is Overwhelmed, an account in photographs and text of the Roger’s Pass Avalanche of 1910 (the worst in Canadian history with a loss of 58 lives).... More

We stopped in for a quick visit on our way though town. The displays are well done and present an interesting glimpse into the history or Revelstoke. If you're passing though, and need a stretch, this is a great way to fill your time.
