Creston Museum

Join us for special events and activities! Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy in our shady gazebo, too. These are only a few of the weird, wonderful, and fascinating stories you can explore at the Creston Museum. Investigate exhibits on everything from the Ktunaxa people, to a trapper's cabin, to pioneer stores - and, while you're at it, see if you can figure out what's unusual about the pool table. Take a lesson in the school house, or try your hand at packing fruit. Discover some interesting objects in our I Spy sidewalk, and whatever you do, don't miss the model railway.

Creston hasn't observed Daylight Saving Time since 1918. The first steamship on Kootenay Lake came from Norway. In 1939, the Creston High School had an imaginary student named George. And there's a crypt in the floor of the Creston Museum.

Our knowledgeable tour guides can tell you everything you want or need to know about the local stories, and we love to hear your stories, too. In fact, the archives can help you learn more about your own story, whether you're looking for photos of local landmarks, or gossip columns in the old newspapers.

Or, if old stuff isn't your thing, just come on down and enjoy our lovely grounds - it's a great place to stretch your legs, and our endless supply of sidewalk chalk is a great hit with restless youngsters!. We have public washrooms, check out the 'Unmentionables' exhibit while you're in there, or visit the gift shop.
There is always something happening at the Creston Museum!

Summer Hours: We'll be open seven days a week in June, as well as July and August.
