Princeton: This museum celebrates pioneer life

The Princeton and District Museum features fossils, First Nations artifacts and more

You can get a sense of British Columbia’s old west (and by old, we mean really old) at the Princeton and District Museum, which houses the Joe Pollard fossil collection.

Princeton is known for its two rivers and its mining and forestry industries.

Said to be one of the finest small-town museums in B.C., the facility also features and early 1900s stagecoach, First Nations artifacts, a livery stable, exhibits about early pioneer life and more.

Although the museum was closed at the time of posting due to the COVID-19 crisis, check this website to find out about its current status when planning your trip.
