Things to do and see in Harrison Hot Springs:
- Stop by the Harrison Visitor Centre and visit the Sasquatch Museum
Located at the corner of Hot Springs Road and Walnut. 499 Hot Springs Rd, Harrison Hot Springs, BC. Open 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM Tuesday-Sunday.
The history of the Sasquatch with both First Nations and settlers is part of what makes it so unique. As the anglicized pronunciation the Sts’ailes word, Sa:sq’ets, the Sasquatch is the “primary caretaker who watches over the land” and is integral to the Sts’ailes people.
The mystery of “Bigfoot” has led thousands to search for signs of the Ape-like beast, including the late Canadian journalist John Green. Green conducted interviews, did extensive research, and dedicated much of his professional life to documenting and finding the elusive creature. Question everything but don’t dismiss the possibilities until you’ve explored our collection. The legend is real!
