For the size of the museum it has lots to offer. The set up makes it easy to travel through time and the cabins are awesome to go back in time to see how people lived. Everything is clean and informative. Great place to spend a rainy day!

When I went in, I was the only visitor. They open just for me the museum. Great information about the history. For me was it a nice touch after I saw the movie The Revenant in the near by theatre.Very interesting.

I took my 4 year old grandaughter to visit, and we learned a lot about the area, and its peoples and creatures, including the Charlie Lake caves with some of earliest human remains in BC and the surrounding heritage buildings are also wonderful to prowl around in.

We spent a couple of hours here, learning about the history of the area and information on the building of the Alaska Highway. The admission charge was $6 for adults. It was a nice little museum and worth an hour of your time.

Our daughter took us to this little museum when we were visiting her on the weekend. Nice displays, good movement around, interesting pictures. Entrance fee perhaps just a little steep for the size, but almost everything in Fort St. John is higher priced than anywhere else! Nice gift/souvenir shop at the entrance, which you don't have to pay to browse... More
