The murals represent the history of Chemainus, which was mostly Japanese originally until Pearl Harbour. There are scenes of the lumber industry and its' founders. Wonderfully executed and refurbished regularly. Horse and buggy or a train on wheels will take you through town for a minimal fee with an interpreter of the murals.

These murals do make Chemainus distinctive. Most tell a historical story, and they certainly add to the charm of a charming small Van Island town

If you have a bit of time to spend wandering around the Little Town of Chemainus come and enjoy the Art on the Walls. There is never a boring moment and so much to see. History everywhere.

Spread around this quaint town are murals depicting the history of the community. They are of the highest quality and are excellent for a walking tour to work up an appetite for a nice lunch in a local restaurant or cafe.

The murals are quite impressive. They are a great way to see the history of the area and you can have some fun taking pictures with the murals, pretending to be part of the scene. Takes about 1.5 hours to walk around all murals at a comfortable pace. Free parking at the "Waterwheel Park" and most of the murals are... More

There are 41 murals and 11 statues to look at not to mention the beautiful natural park, the square where the museum is and the wonderful shops all along the mural tour path. We met... More

Nice walk around the town to see the Murals, Stores, Shops and Restaurants. Make sure you walk to the lower part of the town as well where you will find more restaurants and stores to explore.

Some of the murals are a little difficult to figure out so make sure you stop at the Tourist Information booth to get the story behind the many murals.

We walked all over town to look at the murals, very impressive and interesting, they even have little yellow footprints on the sidewalk to follow paths to see the murals. Enjoyable to look at the history of them.
