Highlights include an Audio Visual Gallery, showing documentaries and temporary exhibits; traditional music; thousands of artifacts reflecting the settlement; and the Art Gallery/Craft Center, depicting Doukhobor-related handiwork. Spinning and weaving demonstrations occur July through September. Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
