Temporarily closed

R.J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum is looking carefully at the COVID-19 guidelines and procedures necessary to safely open to the public and to ensure the safety of our staff and volunteers. Until we can safely navigate these procedures and proper protocols are in place, the Heritage Village, Museum, Sprig of Heather Restaurant and walking trails will remain closed to the public. We are committed to our efforts to reduce the impact of COVID-19 in our community.

After thoughtful consideration, the Salmon Arm Museum and Heritage Association and Management of R.J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum sadly announce for the safety of our community, the cancellation of our busy event season, including the very popular Villains and Vittles Dinner Theatre.

As a registered charity, this ongoing closure and cancellation of events profoundly impacts the long-term sustainability of the Village & Museum. We are doing our part to reduce and contain costs and have implemented a short-term plan to help lessen the financial impact on the Village & Museum.

We need you now more than ever! Please help support R.J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum by purchasing a membership and consider making a charitable donation.

Although our gates are closed to the public, some staff are still on hand managing operations and protecting our valuable exhibits and artifacts. We are taking every measure to ensure we continue to preserve and maintain our assets during this unprecedented time.

We want to be ready to re-open to the public as soon as we safely can and to be here for future generations.

If you would like to purchase your membership or make a donation by phone, call 250-832-5243.

Villains and vittles dinner theatre Production Celebrating twenty seven years in 2021. We have a COVID-19 Safety Plan ready, and the show will go on!

Joining us for his eleventh successful season as writer and director is the local playwright, Peter Blacklock. Peter has written the history of Maw's Jam Eaters. They were the newest team in the hockey league in 1939. The story starts in Maw McEwan's house on Peters Street, where many young men spent their free time. They ate her bread and jam and teased her daughter Doris. Maw decided a hockey team would be an excellent way to put their energy to good use. The trouble was, they were missing one essential ingredient--a fast skater who could beat the defences of the other teams. Their story became legendary, and they topped all Salmon Arm rivals, leading to the city's hockey league title in 1939/40.

Opening night is July 4, with shows every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday evenings in July and August and a special matinee performance on Thursday, August 19.
Check-in starts at 5:00 pm. Come and enjoy a home-cooked dinner with all the pioneer fixings served from the Sprig of Heather restaurant, and dessert will follow the play with homemade rhubarb crisp and ice cream. Adults $28, seniors $26, children five to twelve are $15 and children four and under are FREE.

Reservations are a must! Call 250-832-5243. Dinner theatre is a not to be missed highlight of Salmon Arm's summer entertainment!
