In Rossland’s mining heyday, everyone would have known what all the equipment is on the Rossland Museum’s upper level, but today, things need some explanation. To address this, the Rossland Museum & Discovery Centre is excited to announce that we have completed the installation of brand new outdoor signage to interpret, explain and assist in way-finding through the museum’s outdoor exhibition area.
