Rocky Museum, Jean-Marie Mason
Step into the past with your family. Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy in our backyard during the summer months. Watch our local artist-in-residence weave beautiful fabrics on her loom. The Rocky Museum showcases the history of the pioneers who homesteaded in this area, worked in the lumber camps and sawmills, and sent their children to one-room schoolhouses. Our exhibits include the Meadows Forestry cabin, which is one hundred years old, and the Glacier School house. Have a seat in one of the school desks, and imagine yourself travelling back in time to the days when students walked to school carrying lunch pails, and sat two to a seat on really cold days. Inside the Rocky Museum, check out the Killico General Store and the Coles Brand boards. Take time to listen to a song on our restored player piano. Museum staff will happily demonstrate how it works.
