Shirley is a wealth of knowledge that knows the history of this old mining town. It’s history can be seen through the photos and memorabilia located in the museum. If you watch the movie, plan on spending a few hours at this museum.

What a delightful museum. Covers local history, geology and minerals and the local fauna.

What sets this museum apart is the enthusiasm, knowledge and care shown by the people who work there. Shirley was an absolute fountain of knowledge - about Stewart and Canada in general. In addition she was very generous with her time and knowledge. Wish we had the time to stay for the historical walk around town.

Highly recommend.

This is a relatively small museum in a small town. We were warmly greeted and escorted through some of the exhibits. They have a nice video emphasizing the boom and bust history of mining and logging in the area going back several decades. No “charge” for admission, but donations are encouraged.

The museum is just a few rooms in a multi-purpose building (including the local court), but there's a lot of memorabilia and stories detailed about the area's mining past starting around 1900 and continuing to the present. The local staff are friendly and knowledgeable, too.

Most of the township of Stewart is a museum but the Museum itself is a treasure full of treasures. The volunteers are informative and engaging and proudly represent their town and its history. The variety of displays and the presentation and detail are interesting and impressive. Entry charge is by donation and you leave with a Stewart Pin keepsake. I can highly recommend take a trip to Stewart and to their museum. The drive along the Glacier Highway from Meziadin has spectacular scenery including Bear Glacier and Bear River, and we saw grizzly bears! We have wonderful memories to keep.

I love small town museums. They are always so distinct and cheerful. We had a guided tour (excellent guide) and learned a fair bit of the history of the area. We were surprised haw often the town was the location for films, but, to be honest, we had not heard of any of them. If you are here, do take some time to explore.

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.
