Many historic and heritage sites in the Kootenay Rockies region reflect the region’s railway and mining past.

Watch trains weave through mountains at Yoho National Park’s spiral tunnels. Learn about the world of mining at Kimberley's Underground Mining Railway or the Rossland Museum. Or head to Fort Steele Heritage Town, once a gold rush boomtown, to explore pioneer life. This region also has ghost towns full of historic treasures, like Sandon or 3 Valley Gap Heritage Ghost Town.

In charming Nelson, check out restored Victorian heritage buildings. Or visit Kaslo to board the SS Moyie, the world’s oldest intact passenger sternwheeler. See 505-million-year-old fossils at Burgess Shale in the Canadian Rockies.

Other sites showcase Aboriginal culture and other cultures. Discover Aboriginal art and history at the Ktunaxa Interpretive Centre at St. Eugene resort or learn about Russian immigrant life at Castlegar’s Doukhobor Discovery Centre.
