Donated an old pump organ and was surprised to see how great this place was. They have arranged things beautifully. Good for young people to see how life was in the past. Definitely would recommend a visit.

A great little museum with exhibits very creatively displayed....room themes, wall decor, samples from the past....all help tell the story of early days and the early pioneers of Westbank.
