We stopped in for a request of what to do for a day with a rental car in Smithers and were delighted with the suggestions, maps and directions. Knowledgeable, friendly and very willing to accommodate.

I read on Trip Advisor many people reviews to stop and see this visitor center. Unless you need directions, don't bother. On our entire trip throughout BC this is the poorest marked visitor center anywhere. There is no display inside or out. The young lady inside was very personable and helpful however.

Closed - when it should have been open
Jun. 2019 • Couples
Made an effort to get here before 5 pm as we were unsure what time the office would close. Arrived at 4:45 and were relieved to see the office was open until 6 pm – except it was closed. No explanation. At least 5 other frustrated travellers turned up whilst we were trying to read what we could from papers stuck in the window. Very annoying.

Great little museum and gallery

Loved the exhibits on indigenous peoples history in the area as well as the Chinese and Japanese immigrants. Excellent presentation on the history of Smithers and the connection to railroading in Canada. Very educational. Picked up the brochure about the 'Culture Crawl' and thoroughly enjoyed meandering the downtown streets checking out the points of interest. Well worth the time to explore!

Located within a short walking distance of the Fireweed Motel, the visitor centre is small but has a lot of good resources for learning about Smithers and deciding what to do while you're there. It's located in a quiet section of town, and is worthwhile visiting.
