About Us


The Cranbrook History Centre is a landmark site located in Cranbrook BC. We preserve and display internationally recognized paleontology specimens, a nationally designated railcar collection, and serve as a regional repository for the history of the East Kootenay for [all people/people of all ages/all] to explore and discover.
