Revelstoke Museum & Archives keeps alive the history and heritage of Revelstoke and district by collecting, preserving, documenting and interpreting the artifacts, records and stories of the region in a public community museum. The Museum and Archives is a place where all are welcome to participate, to learn, to share, and to explore the social, industrial and environmental history of the region. Revelstoke Museum and Archives has been collecting artifacts since 1960, with a focus on community and district history. Our collection area extends north to Boat Encampment, south to Trout Lake, east to Donald and west to Malakwa. Displays of artifacts are changed on a regular basis and only a portion of the collection is exhibited at any time. Exhibits are theme-based and focus on some of the district’s major areas of development. Currently, the museum features displays on sports, including Revelstoke’s prominence as a ski-jumping venue; trapping and mining; agriculture; business; ethnic communities; transportation; national parks and natural history among others.
