My family and I come to Peachland around 2-3 times a year to visit family. We come to this museum sometimes to learn about Peachland history. They have lots of cool stuff, and even a typewriter that you can use!

This little museum is so cool with collectibles from the valley. Most amazing is the model rail upstairs.

This small, quaint museum is a must stop when visiting Peachland. You can spend just an hour or two or four or five... there is so much to see, read and listen to. And the model train layout that goes completely around the upper story is outstanding. History. History. History!

We had dinner reservations at a winery near Peachland, and we were running ahead of schedule so we decided to spend our spare time in Peachland since we've never been there before. We happened to walk by this building, and to our surprise, spent quite a bit of time there.

The building has historical significance. From the outside, it looks quite small. The bottom floor has historic artifacts and photographs of the town, but the upstairs has a very intricate working miniture train set that the kids enjoyed watching. Kids especially liked playing with the train whistle as well as use the "old" rotary phones and manual typewriter. We easily spent 45 minutes there, and could have spent more time if it hadn't been close to closing.

On exit, the attendant even gave my son a Hot Wheels truck. How nice is that? A really great visit, considering it was admission by donation.

I would recommend families with young children to visit if they happen to be in the area.
