I thoroughly enjoyed this small museum just outside of Revelstoke on the side road to the Revelstoke Dam Visitor center. Lots of old logging equipment, but also good small exhibits on reforestation, fire fighting, and the Pine Beetle. The staff was very friendly and engaging....More

We stopped here because we had also visited the adjacent Dam. There is an interesting display of forestry work including tools etc. Outside, there are a few awesome exhibits, including an enormous tree trunk on a trailer.

Very interesting museum with history on the logging industry around Revelstoke. It also has very good views of the Revelstoke dam.

After hours i could convince my wife to visit the BC interior forestey museum. What a great disappointment. The museum was just an exhibit of old equipment. Very limited educational value. The topic has great potential but. We were looking to understand the difference between...More
