As a non-profit organization, the Central BC Railway and Forestry Museum relies on revenues from donations, ticket sales, gift shop purchases and memberships to maintain operations.
In order to limit the spread of COVID-19, the Museum closed for several months through 2020, and after re-opening, our visitation continues to be affected. We have drastically reduced tours and site capacity, as well as enhancing staff personal safety training and site sanitization.
Diminished site capacity does not necessarily limit our costs: we continue to push ahead with our long-term vision of building the museum into a fun-filled, educationally-focused, informational institution. The Central BC Railway and Forestry Museum is fortunate: the spaciousness of the site, with its abundance of outdoor space, means that we remain a low risk destination.
