The Enderby & District Museum & Archives is located in downtown Enderby on the corner of Cliff Avenue and George Street (Highway 97A). You will find a parking area next to the city hall complex which can be accessed by Mill Avenue. The museum has two public washrooms on the ground floor and the museum is wheelchair-friendly. Admission is by donation.
The museum features a colourful look at Enderby's past through changing and permanent displays. Of interest is a model of the town and railway station the year of incorporation, 1905, based on photographs and fire insurance maps. Display cabinets highlight the changes in the town and businesses through the decades.
A visitor can see up close the tools of the home, the dairy or woodworking shop. Young people, or those young at heart, can try the wheat grinder or typewriter or unusual adding machine. Visitors can ask for help while learning to make rope.
Our volunteers help visitors with their research questions and offer guided tours of the museum or downtown Enderby to visiting groups of all ages, including seniors' groups and class trips. We are willing to work with local groups to develop special photograph or artifact displays to supplement reunions, open houses, river days celebrations, sports tournaments, extraordinary meetings, and other community events. Please contact us in advance to arrange an appointment or a tour.
