This is a great place to learn about the history in the area. This was a rip roaring mining town 120 years ago with its own smelter. Nothing like the sleepy little town you see today!

Worth a stop in the self-described Canada's Smallest City. While in the area to investigate mining history, we found the displays well done and the staff knowledgable about townspeople to contact for more info.

The museum staff are very informative and very helpful. Lots of history on the mining of the old days and the history of the Japanese people in the area

Visited the museum on a whim after checking out the visitor centre. It is a really well-done snap-shot of local history, and some of the signal personalities and events associated with the area. If you are on Highway 3, take the time to stop in and see it.

Small town museums are hard to find, and this is a good one. Lots of interesting things to learn about this old mining town.

Greenwood, one the loveliest town in BC, for history lovers a must. This is where Canadian government had kept the Japanese in WWII. Beautifly documented their life, hardship, injustice. Many stayed after, now might see some beautiful young people with Japanese faces. As You finished the visit the bakery a block away, one of the best bakery in BC.

Because of time constraints, we only had a short time to spend at this museum but I highly recommend a stop here. The price of admission was low and the people working here were extremely friendly and very willing to share extensive information on the area. We'll be back!

We had heard about this museum from friends and decided on a trip through Greenwood to check it out and we certainly were not disappointed.
