After a multi-year hiatus, the Fernie Museum’s Guided Heritage Walking Tours will be returning this summer.

“We haven’t offered walking tours for a number of years, so we were very excited to develop this program. It will offer people great insight into the how and why of Fernie’s development and how the community developed,” said Museum Director Ron Ulrich.

The walking tour itself will delve into Fernie’s rich and dramatic history, narrated by knowledgeable local guides for 90 minute sessions.

Stories of Fernie’s devastating fires, coal mining disasters, legends of its curses, and an introduction into the people and events that helped shape Fernie as it is now are all touted aspects of these walking tours.

After delving into the past, guides will also assist participants on current accommodations, restaurants and cafés that present-day Fernie can offer.

The tour kickoff will be Saturday, July 4 and will run every following Saturday until the end of August.

Tickets for adults are $10 and tickets for families are $25. To purchase tickets or further information visit www.ferniemuseum.com or contact the museum via phone at 250-423-7016.
