This January, the Rossland Historical Museum is excited to present a new, community driven exhibit, “Objects of Significance”.  Exploring the mining, cultural and technological history of Rossland and area through the interpretation of artifacts chosen and researched by members of the public, the installation invites new opportunities for visitors to experience a museum exhibit.

Many local groups and community members were invited to participate in the development of the exhibit.  All artifacts on display, from the museum’s permanent collection and from local collectors, were chosen and researched by the groups.   Each artifact has a unique history and story that will lead the visitor to imagine how life has changed in Rossland since it was a booming mining town in the late 1800s to today’s prestige as one of the best ski areas in the world.

Opening Friday January 25th at the Nelson and District Credit Union, located at 2071 Columbia Avenue, the exhibit is accessible to the public Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Admission is free and donations will be graciously accepted with all proceeds going towards funding future exhibits at the museum. Follow the exhibit on Facebook via the Museum’s page.
