This is what all small museums should be -- it's only a few rooms in the old courthouse, but carefully curated. You get a sense of the conflicts that took place in the town's creation, the dispossession of native peoples, and also -- through an exhibition of ephemera -- a sense of everyday life in Smithers over the years. And I found out the Bulkley Valley's claim to world fame -- the invention of the egg carton! I'd urge all TripAdvisor uses to go, and give a small donation to these guys so they can carry on their good work. The museum is just next to the Visitor Information Centre, which is a great resource. I'd recommend half an hour's stop here to gain knowledge of the town's history.

This is a great place to go if you want to learn about the Smithers and area history. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Artifacts are well displayed. They even had a game the kids played to learn about the area.
