Very nice and lovely museum! We came here over the family day long weekend from Edmonton, and this was definitely one of the highlights of the trip! The guide was very outgoing and energetic, as well as very informative! I learned a lot about the history of both the town of Hinton, and the area surrounding! Thank you so much!
