  • Easily could have spend more time there. Well done displays on local history. Loved the native narrative of the coyote story.
  • I felt there is a lot of value in your ticket cost. We really enjoyed the two galleries and wandering the museum. As a visitor we learned quite a bit about Nelson that we were not aware of. The videos were informative and the information displayed well. Thank you!
  • As a volunteer for 30 years I can say there is much that continues to delight me. Well displayed local history depicted in an interesting and sensitive manner. The galleries continue to host incredible shows and the gift shop has a wealth of fine local goods.
  • Awesome staff - great building - local artist support ----- what's not to love?
