The Cumberland Museum and Archives opened its doors in 1981 and is home to the extensive archives and artifacts of the community of Cumberland. It tells the story of the people of Cumberland – the rich, the poor, the powerful, the rebellious, the righteous and the radical. You are invited to join the “People’s Museum” of Cumberland and add your questions, knowledge, stories and interests to the rich fabric of our organization.

The Museum is open year round and offers over 40 exhibits, a company store, research services, after-school programs, heritage events, guided tours, films, video kiosks, and a replica coal mine. It is located in the heart of the historic village, steps from #6 Memorial Mine Park and downtown shopping and dining. We are wheelchair accessible, offer free wireless internet access and provide visitor services for travellers.
