What a gem of a place. Recently taken over by the local community, this museum is housed in the original railroad station building and gives a fascinating insight in to late 19th & early 20th century life.
Well worth a visit and a great way to break the journey

We like to seek out local attractions and were not disappointed when we found this gem of a museum. This is really great place full of the history of the railway plus local history. If you are in the area or passing through en route like we were then stop by this great little museum.

This is a good choice when in Valemount, BC, Canada. Not far from the highway. Parking was not a problem. A few buildings to peruse.

Museum of local history with friendly knowledgeable staff. This museum is situated in the old railway station which has been moved back from the tracks. Outside on tracks is an old caribou and other small track machines. There museum contains stories and exhibits through time from when this area was opened up by white settlers. All very nicely presented. Worth a visit. Recommended

Great museum to visit with the whole family. There are exhibits outside and inside and it is highly interactive.

On the inside, there is model train fully built and running around the building. Quite the sight!

A beautiful collection about the past 100-150 years of the area. Covering agricultural, industrial and cultural aspects. The building itslef was the building of the Valemount train station in the past. Moved from its original position here in the late 70’s. Nicely set up in its new place, maintained and kept clean and well. Recommended while in the area or just passing by.

The museum is a good size for a small town. Nice attention to keeping the exhibits relevant to local history. The model railroad in the main building was pretty neat too.

This little museum is packed with information about the area. The history of Valemount is tied to the railway so the focus is on that. There are model trains in the basement that are running around the room.
Worth the visit
