Fort St. John gets more traffic from locals & visitors with museum upgrades!

April 5, 2016


Take a tour of the North Peace Museum in Fort St. John – it’s more accessible than ever thanks to upgrades supported by Northern Development. A grant for $68,545 was provided from the Economic Diversification Infrastructure program. The museum provides an important stop for travellers on the Alaska Highway, and improvements to the facility encourage tourists to stop and stay in Fort St. John. They saw a marked increase in school group tours and expects to see an increase in visitor rates this summer.

“The renovations allow us to serve the community better” said Heather Sjoblom, Manager/Curator, Fort St. John North Peace Museum, “It’s something people can really appreciate”.
