The Fernie Museum has collected objects since 1964. The diverse collections tell how communities in the Elk Valley grew and evolved over time. Individual objects provide insight into each generation’s desire to preserve their part of the Fernie story. In a rare peek into the vaults, the Fernie Museum presents 150 treasures and curiosities in the final exhibition celebrating Canada 150.
These objects have not been seen by the public since they were put into storage 20 years ago. In 2018, the Museum will begin a program to rehouse and catalogue the entire collection.

Let Mindfulness be a tool for you to be more calm, more happy and allow you to bring kindness and composure into whatever you are doing. 2-hour workshop that will give you tools to take away for a happier life.
