Situated at historic Mile 300 of the famous Alaska Highway the Fort Nelson Heritage Museum sits on over 1 acre of property and houses not only a main log gallery but also 7 outbuildings that are all bursting at the seams with artifacts dating back to the early 1800’s.

Our theme is transportation and the Alaska Highway but we have a little bit of everything.  Visit Fort Nelsons first post office, wander through the Hudson Bay House, be facinated by the CN Communications building,  or take a step back in time in our Trappers Cabin.

If you love cars, prepared to be awestruck!  Too many to count but we do have a car that is more than 100 years old.  You will love our car shed.

We have a quaint gift shop, a relaxing picnic area,  a privately run ice cream shack and an artists cabin.

So much more we could list but you will have to come see for yourself.  We look forward to seeing you.
