We are glad we visited this museum. For a small space, it packs in a tremendous amount of information, and contains many historical artifacts. The staff member was able to answer any questions we had about the displays. Worth the $5 entry fee.

This museum was a great find. The Museum is located down town and was a wealth of knowledge. The gentleman who greeted us was very approachable if you had any questions. A donation is the fee

Small, very attractive displays. There is a photo exhibit on the 2nd floor which should not be missed. It really gives a visitor a feel for the community of Fernie.
