The Vanderhoof Museum is a collection of six historic buildings from Vanderhoof and surrounding area. We are open to the public to learn about Vanderhoof’s history! Stop by the historic (and still operating) OK Cafe for delicious homemade pie and lunch. The Visitor Centre is located in the Board of Trade Building, which was historically used as a community gathering space. Grab some WIFI, brochures, and check out the local art for sale. A large RV parking lot and 1.5km interpretive walking trail are located on site.
