The Museum can provide you with some of the history of White Rock. The gift shop has many interesting finds you may purchase. The staff is very knowledgeable and courteous.

We visited as a Psych filming location, but found it to be quaint in its own right. Parking was a bit of a mess due to construction, but we enjoyed our visit.

It was very interesting to understand a little bit of the history for White Rock. The pictures of the early railroad and old cars are invaluable to all visitors.

Not a whole lot here, but some great train memorabilia. Great gift shop, too, especially if you like trains.

Up to the 1970s, this is an official train station staffed by Canadian customs and immigration depts. to look after the formalities in receiving American tourists. It was a popular vacation spot easily accessible by train. Now it archives the memoribilia of White Rock.

We enjoyed the small museum which gave us the history of White Rock. It was interesting learning about the train and telegraph. The mail got through pretty fast in that area.

I love to visit the White Rock Museum in December every year. They have great gift ideas and they support local visit. Well worth the visit every December.
