The Lytton Chinese History Museum will collect, preserve and display artifacts and photos with the goal of encouraging a greater interest in, and understanding of, the experiences, hardships, and contributions made in BC’s Interior by thousands of Chinese miners, railway workers, merchants and farmers.

Just driving through, came across this little gem. Amazing collection, brings back memories as a child- paternal grandparents had many household items, etc. Your collection is kept in such great condition. Thank you for reminding us of the contributions of the Chinese people.

Surprising and awesome historical museum in the tiny village of Lytton! You learn a lot about the history of Chinese migrants and their role in the railways construction. The lady who dedicated her retirement to build this museum is charming and a priceless source of knowledge...

It's excellent.  With the Reg Beck things added to what was a pretty good collection already, you have one of the best Chinese North American collections anywhere, and you have put more of it online than anyone else.

 Excellent Museum - What a great exhibit documenting the history of the Chinese in the Fraser Canyon area generally and Lytton specifically. It is obvious that a great deal of thought has gone in to sharing this important story with visitors and locals. The artifacts are interesting, as is the story of the Chinese population in the community and their important contributions.
