Our trip to the Midway Museum was a fantastic walk back in time. With a fully restored caboose and original station with period furniture and equipment the railway fantasy came to life. The museum has a wonderful collection from the surrounding ranching and farming community....More

Based on the previous reviews, I was looking forward to something special. However, I didn't see anything that sets this apart from the many old railway stations throughout BC. If you haven't seen a CP station or caboose before, this will interest you. Similarly, some...More

This is a nice stop on Hwy 3 with a great collection of historical artifacts. People behind this museum have clearly went at great lengths to preserve even the smallest artifacts like matchboxes and mails. I would highly recommend paying a visit when in the...More

We stopped here on the way back east, having ridden the Kettle Valley Railway in Summerland the day before. And earlier in our trip we'd learned at Fort Steele about the role of the RCMP in securing the border. It seems the KV Railway also...More

Really easy to spot when you are driving through the area. Worth stopping for a break and an insight into local history. The main building has quite a lot in it and some is set up in little scenarios, like the school room. In the...More
