STEP INTO THE PAST this winter AND help PRESERVE OUR FUTURE
Valemount is rich in history and we’ve preserved our heritage in our museums.
Take a tour of the Valemount War Heroes Museum within The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 266. It’s a sombre reminder how international conflicts had a deadly impact even within the protective shadow of the Rocky Mountains. View photos, books, uniforms and artifacts that detail the region’s history and contributions to peacekeeping. Valemount’s heritage runs deep in this valley.
If you close your eyes you can almost hear the echoes of the Grand Trunk Pacific train as it approaches the station. The Valemount Museum and Archive is open during the summer months (May-September). It was originally a train station back in the 1930s. Take a self-guided tour or be led through the exhibits by our friendly staff. It is awash with local history that includes antique tools and furniture.
By educating yourself on their stories, you give respect to those who fought and died for our freedom.
