Excellent collection of antique farm equipment from the early days when the Peace country was settled including steam tractors. Quite a few of the tractors have had their 100th birthday and all are in running condition. About the middle of July every year there is a weekend event where all the tractors are running for a parade around the museum.... More

Lots of exhibits and family fun. See the machinery demonstrations - grain threshing, flour grinding, wood cutting. Much of the machinery is restored to running order. Try some of the home made cinnamon buns.

Lots of fun for families to walk though, plan about 2-3 hours, more if you wanted to bring a picnic lunch.

Enjoyable way to spend the day! Really enjoyed the steam tractors, impressive in the parade, then powering the sawmill. Other antique tractors were utilized to operate the threshing machine. A real bonus was the cinammon buns made in the clay oven - very tasty and delicious.

Visited this place today. The antique steam tractors were a big hit! Definitely worth a stop to get a good look at the early days in this part of the region.

For those that are looking for something to do when traveling through this region, why not stop and take in some local history. The south peace centennial museum was a great way to learn a little about the local community and to get outside and enjoy some fresh air. In about an hour you can walk through the buildings and...

I was there last year and enjoyed my visit back in History. Wonderful museum, had a beautiful walk and explored all it had to offer; enjoyed taking pictures of the incredible pieces of history. There is a lot to see, I only attached a few pictures; so much more to see at the South Peace Centennial Museum.
