The Revelstoke Museum and Archives is located at 315 First Street West and was originally built in 1926 as the Post Office and Customs Office. Much of the original woodwork as well as the marble flooring in the hallways is still in place. The exterior of the two story brick building has not changed a great deal over the years. The building was bought in 1971 by the city of Revelstoke and became the Museum in 1974. Its curator, Kathy English, has worked in the museum for more than three decades and is very familiar with the collections and history of the Revelstoke area. The Revelstoke Museum and Archives opened a heritage garden in 2004, which features varieties of plants that were grown in the gardens of the early Revelstoke settlers. It also has a gift shop located at the front of the building where one can find items that have been made locally from jewelry to chocolates and heritage photo reproductions.
The Museum is open Monday through Friday from 10 AM to 5 PM and Saturdays from 11 AM to 5 PM.
