“Fun Little Excursion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2012

We drove from Wannacut Late out to Molson, what a beautiful drive out there. And the Museum was fun to walk around. Kids enjoyed looking at eerything and even walking up to the old school.

“Felt it was worth the time to visit -”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2012

A good collection of artifacts from the late 1800's to early 1900's in the old schoolhouse. There was no entrance fee in 7/2012, donations were requested. Took about 1 1/2 hours, or you could take longer depending on your level of interest, to tour the school house and look at the old buildings from the original settlement just down the road from the school house.

“If you have young kids, Molson Musuem Ghost Town will be a hit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2012

The museum is very well done and the ghost town is a marvel - there is something so weird about being up in the highlands in the middle of nowhere, in a completely non-commercialized ghost town!

“Not really a ghost town but well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

possibly one of the most "laid back" museums I have ever visited
The Farm equipment, home stead, bank etc are really something from a bye gone era. Anywhere else in the world most of the artifacts would have been "lifted" as there is no security and you are free to wander.
The school is superb with one of the best collections of tools I have ever seen. The staff are all volunteers and the carrot cake and smartie cookies are to die for.
The staff in the school just love their "work" an make history come alive.
No admission fee, just a donation if you wish.
We saw it on a miserable rainy day and it added a different dimension I am sure to what you would see on a sunny day . Also travelling from Osoyoos, the price of gas is an added bonus!

“Interesting glimpse of old west history in beautiful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2012

Wonderful story behind this little "ghost" town. Well presented. Interesting displayed. FREE! Just pull off the road and wander around at your own pace. Family friendly. Lots of interesting old farm equipment and tools, homesteader cabins, old bank, etc.

Molson museum just up the road also an excellent FREE museum. Donations appreciated. Small gift shop with the best carrot cake you have ever had! Clean restrooms and knowledge, friendly volunteer staff that will be happy to see you. Handicap accessible.
