 Heritage Garden

Relax and unwind in our beautiful garden getaway.  This space is open to the public during museum hours and entry is free of charge.

The garden is maintained by a group of dedicated volunteers. If you wish to join them please let us know. They are always happy to find new people who wish to tend the garden.

The Heritage Garden was presented with an Award of Honour from the B.C. Heritage Society in 2005. Landscape Architect Barbara Johnstone Davidson and Curator Cathy English accepted the award on behalf of the Heritage Garden Committee.

A Building with a history

Our beautiful building was constructed in 1926 as the Revelstoke Post Office and Customs, on a site chosen in 1910 by Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier. The building became home to Revelstoke Museum & Archives in July 1974.
