Interior Forestry Museum

Forestry has always been an important industry in Revelstoke. The Interior Forestry Museum is located in the forest covered area between the Selkirk and Monashee mountains in Revelstoke. This museum showcases the history of the logging and lumber industry, details of the forest eco-system, the lives of the first foresters and so on. The exhibits on display here include a left handed chainsaw, logging harness, a 1956 Hayes logging truck, a 1951 Northwest heel boom loader, cartoon clippings from the year 1921 which talk about preventing fire, the tree that healed itself and more. There are also many storyboards here. A popular storyboard is one which captures the story of logging including the perils faced by entrepreneurs and workers, environmental issues and so on. A more recent storyboard highlights the story of the pine beetle and how it is causing much damage to the trees in the forests of Canada. Another storyboard tells us of the lives of the first foresters.  Besides these exhibits, there is also a picnic area, perfect for a family outing. You can also find a gift shop that sells wonderful wood works, collectibles etc. This museum is open throughout the week from June to September.
