Took my kids here when I lived in Kaslo - a very informative trip through history. Very nicely restored and a great interpretive tour. For a small donation you can even toot the air horn!

Loved the Moyie Sternwheeler museum, fantastic, awesome, fun, educational. It was a beautiful day, lots of sunshine. Kootenay Lake is beautiful to see from the Moyie. Enjoyed the nearby Kaslo, BC visitor center too.

Kalso BC is a really neat town. Most of the buildings seem to be heritage buildings from the turn of the 19/20th century & they make it feel like a wild west town. However, there is a rear paddle steamer undergoing restoration & it is...More
