Stopped in while taking a look at the damn and my son and I found it very interesting. They only ask for donations and we walked around checking all the historical equipment and information. Also a good spot to take a photo of the dam.

Nice collection of "old" forestry equipment - trucks, saws etc. It is located next to Revelstoke Dam. Nice for a quick stop.

Came across this on our way to the Revelstoke dam. Weren't sure what to expect but the 3 year old boy loved running around the trucks and my ham radio buff was pleased to find a display in the tower.
