Admission to the FVHC is by donation. Some are very generous after a tour and engaging visit - others breeze through quickly. Whatever your preference, we are grateful for the donations that help us stay open and uphold our mission statement!
Come stop by the museum - we would love to give you a tour!
Our space is small, but the history of the area is vast - and a tour by one of our knowledgeable staff is the best way to experience it all!
From prehistory fossils and bones - to the disastrous flood of 2020 there is a lot of history to display. Indigenous culture and heritage, Fur trade, Trapping, Agriculture, Transportation and Natural History is a brief summary of what we currently have on the exhibit floor!
All tours are included in admission (donation)
