Welcome to the Valemount Museum! Built in 1914, our building has three levels, the main floor, an upstairs, as well as the basement. On the main floor, we have displays on railroad towns, Japanese Internment camps, Valemount pioneers, local War Heroes, and more. Some of the artists on display include Margaret McKirdy’s sculptures, and James Vanslyk’s art. We have recreated an outfitting and trapper’s cabin in our basement. Additionally, there is the Ishbel Cochrane exhibit, created in memory of Ishbel Cochrane. This exhibit also features the Hargreaves Brothers Outfitting Company, and the historic Mount Robson Ranch, where Ishbel grew up. The Museum’s upper level contains a bedroom and school house display. In addition we have a restored Standard Cupola CN Caboose, as well as the annex. The annex contains local logging and farming artifacts.
