Set on 40 acres of the prettiest farmland in the Shuswap, the Heritage Village features 24 relocated and replicated buildings, including the original 1910 Haney House. There are more than 30 exhibits, which tell the stories of Salmon Arm’s and the Shuswap’s history to discover on your next visit.

The Village & Museum are open Wednesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and during July and August are open seven days a week.

To mark the opening of the season, visit the Village on Saturday and Sunday, May 18 & 19, and enjoy their famous Pioneer Pancake Breakfast, 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in Marjorie’s Tea Room for $6.

Admission to the Village includes all of the hands-on activities, a guided tour of the Haney House and access to the Village, Museum and trails.

If you are looking for a quaint and unique lunch experience, drop by the Village’s own Marjorie’s Tea Room. Located on the first floor of the Broadview School House, and open Wednesday to Sunday, the Tea Room serves a delicious daily lunch special and baked goodies. Visitors who would like to come for lunch in Marjorie’s Tea Room, but are not staying to look at the Village & Museum, can ask for a free visitors pass at the gate.
