     (5 / 5)

    This museum is amazing. nFirst of all it open at least 9pm everyday. Has all authentic items donated by people who lived in Peachland years ago. Household items, medicine, office, military, lots of magazines!! ( Birks magazine from 1950!!), articles, folder and folders of history. This museum should be in Genesis book!nMuseum has functional train model. Train runs around the room on second floor. So cool!! I could spend a week in that museum. nAbsolutely the best attraction in Peachland. Admission is by donation.

     (5 / 5)

    My family and I come to Peachland around 2-3 times a year to visit family. We come to this museum sometimes to learn about Peachland history. They have lots of cool stuff, and even a typewriter that you can use!

    This little museum is so cool with collectibles from the valley. Most amazing is the model rail upstairs.

  6. Nice surprise for the kids

     (4 / 5)

    We had dinner reservations at a winery near Peachland, and we were running ahead of schedule so we decided to spend our spare time in Peachland since we’ve never been there before. We happened to walk by this building, and to our surprise, spent quite a bit of time there The building has historical significance. From the outside, it looks quite small. The bottom floor has historic artifacts and photographs of the town, but the upstairs has a very intricate working miniture train set that the kids enjoyed watching. Kids especially liked playing with the train whistle as well as use the ‘old’ rotary phones and manual typewriter. We easily spent 45 minutes there, and could have spent more time if it hadn’t been close to closing. nnOn exit, the attendant even gave my son a Hot Wheels truck. How nice is that? A really great visit, considering it was admission by donation. nnI would recommend families with young children to visit if they happen to be in the area.
