    This is a fantastic little museum. They have a great bookstore, and the displays cover a nice history of the Revelstoke area. There's a great spot with toys for kids to play on the second floor. Definitely worth a couple hours to discover the history of the area.

    An absolute gem! I spent the afternoon absorbing all the rich history contained within this small space. The work that has gone into preserving a history that at times seems to have been at risk of slipping through the cracks of time is truly impressive. Cathy English, the museum curator, is to be commended for her work. As a ski bum, I love ski history, and this was a key component of the museum. The gift shop has a ton of awesome stuff; I ended up dropping a bunch of cash on cool items that will always remind me of my trip here, and this very special place.

    Great little museum! A lot of work has gone into this place and it really shows. The shop also has some sweet old school ski club merch. Definitely worth a visit and worth supporting on your way through town!

Where to stay in Revelstoke

Revelstoke's position on the Columbia River endows it with scenic vistas, and most of the accommodations in town take advantage of this by offering waterfront views. Stay at one of the many bed and breakfasts, inns, hotels, or lodges on the east side of the river to make the most of the scenery. If you visit Revelstoke to ski--between November and April--stay south of the town center, in a ski chalet at the foot of Revelstoke Mountain. There, you'll be perfectly placed to catch a gondola up the mountain and shred down its slopes.
