R.J. Haney Heritage Village, the Museum and Archives, located at 751-Highway 97B, is a lovely place that offers a unique and authentic experience for visitors to come and explore our rich Heritage. The 40-acre site is comprised of 18 buildings that are either replicas or originals, including the original 1910 Haney House. There are over 30 exhibits, which tell the stories of Salmon Arm’s history and the Shuswap, to discover on your next visit!
In 2017 the Village celebrated the grand opening of the Montebello Museum, the Village’s Canada 150 Project. The Montebello Museum is over 12,000 square feet. Nine storefronts complete the stories told at the Village such as Miss Puff’s Millinery, the Salmon Arm Telephone Exchange, and the McGuire General Store. It is the new home for the Ernie Does Archives Room and the Museum’s collection.
A must see is our very popular Villains and Vittles Dinner Theatre Production. Enjoy a home-cooked meal and live theatre every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday evening in July and August. Reservations are a must and seating is limited. You don’t want to miss this highlight of Salmon Arm’s summer entertainment!
If you are looking for a quaint and unique lunch experience, you must visit the Village’s own Marjorie’s Tea Room. Located in the lower level of the Broadview School House and open Wednesday to Sunday from mid-May to mid-September, Marjorie’s Tea Room serves up a home-cooked $8.99 daily lunch special and features baked goodies.
Throughout the season, visitors also experience the many special events hosted by the Village with our community partners, including High Tea, Father’s Day, Pioneer Day, the Classic Antique Car Show, Harvest Celebration, and more. Some of the best memories are made at R.J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum. A visit from May through September is well worth the trip!
