Wonderful Museum and Tour!
Aug. 2020
The person who took us through the museum (I don’t know her name) had so much knowledge about the exciting history of Stewart. The museum had so many interesting artifacts and the documentary on the history was fascinating as well. Highly recommend it.

The most interesting museum I’ve ever been in. This mining town has so much history. Our tour guide ( Shirley) went above and beyond. I am a paraplegic and she arranged my tour of the upstairs area and areas I couldn’t access from my wheel chair to be connected in FaceTime. What a great idea. I was able to see and hear everything of the tour that able bodied guest could see. This service had never been offered to me anywhere before. Our tour was so personable and the history and stories that Shirley relayed where so interesting. I’ve never been to a museum where the staff where so involved with making sure we enjoyed and learnt everything there was about the area. As we reached out to the museum before travelling to Stewart, Shirley even previewed and helped set up a hotel reservation at Ripley Creek Inn and went to the hotel in advance to make sure i could access the room and be able to use a ramp and have accessible parking. The museum staff went above and beyond. Please please visit this Museum when in the Stewart area. A lot of work and perseverance has gone into the history of the region and specifically this museum. The museum was definitely a highlight to our visit amoung many other things this small border town has to over.

Stewart - BC Northwest border town, Canada
Aug. 2019
We visited the Visitors Center in Stewart Town on our way to view the bears at the Fish Creek Wildlife Observation Site , Hyder and also the Salmon Glacier Provincial Park.
It unfortunately, has lost it's glory after the Gold Rush days were over. It is a rustic but peaceful place for one who are interested to do some fishing, hiking and viewing wild animals- particularly the bears. This is also the place to view the rare Spirit or Kermode Bears .

Some interesting items and great staff

The museum doesn’t have a lot of items but it is quaint. The best part of this museum was the sweet lady who gave us a tour. She was covering for the regular curator but she did a great job. It was really nice to hear stories from the olden days and for her to fill in with her own experiences.

Interesting historical perspective
Aug. 2019 • Couples
This little museum is definitely worth a visit. The young woman who gives you a personal tour is very friendly and enthusiastic. The film is very well done and provides a very interesting context for the town and area. Note that it has moved from the old firewall building and is not in the Service BC building. Very nice collection of artifacts.

The maim moved. The building now appears empty for the most part. Only a large bell on the main floor. The second floor, from the floor and through the windows, appeared to be used for season town storage.
