Yesteryear Artefacts Museum

The Yesteryear Artefacts Museum is located at Rowley, 3 km west of Highway 56. The collection at the museum includes artefacts and displays of early settlers, ten buildings, including a one room country school with a teachers’ residence, an authentic western saloon, a reconstructed pool hall, an old garage, a historic church, a bank, a boxcar, and three elevators.

The Yesteryear Artefacts Museum does not currently offer specific education programs, however tours are available for students. A pizza night is held on the last Saturday of the month from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Many commercials, documentaries, and the movie Bye Bye Blues have been filmed in Rowley, giving it the nickname “Rowleywood”. Students may be interested in learning about how these were done, including watching some of the commercials in the Museum’s early theatre.
