The Revelstoke museum is the ideal place to get a glimpse into the social, economic, cultural, historical and environmental history and heritage of the city. The museum houses a number of exhibits and artifacts related to the city’s main highlights in terms of business, society, and environment.  You can find theme based exhibits on transportation, ethnic communities and culture, regional trade, community settlement and so on. One of the major highlights in the Revelstoke museum is the ornate chair which was made in 1897 for the commemoration of Queen Victoria’s 60th year reign. You can also find a coat made using buffalo fur. This coat weighs 33 pounds and was worn by a warden of the National Park in the 1920’s. You can also find bear traps which were designed specially to trap grizzly bears. Bear trapping was once big business in Revelstoke. This city also witnessed a gold rush in the 1860’s. The museum houses gold scales which were used to weight the gold brought in by the miners. The museum itself is housed in an old 1926 building with much of the exteriors, interiors, wood works, and flooring being retained in its original form. Entry is free for children under 6 years. Entry cost is $4 for adults, $3 for senior citizens, $2 for youth and $12 for family.
