The town is charming and small enough to walk the whole area. The murals are spectacular and worth a side trip on your way to or from Victoria. There are a few restaurants in town, and when all else fails, hit the Subway on the Main street.

We visited Chemainus for a few days to visit friends and attend the Chemainus theater, and walked around looking at some of the many murals. They are nicely done, although I wouldn't make a trip to this town just for the murals. Chemainus closes up around 5:00 in the evening.

Fascinating history and so much to see, I purchased the book to bring home with me. Beautifully done. Enjoy walking through the town, there are incredible surprises for adults and children. Check out Hansel and Gretel's Candy Co. and the secret garden.

This is an amazing collection of murals taken from actual local family albums. How did we learn this? We had special treatment while studying the brochure put out by the local historical society. A wonderful local lady stopped her car and said she would get us started out right. Wow! You will have a wonderful adventure without our personal guide,... More

This is a lovely little town. Everywhere else had scenery or other tourist attractions and this town had nothing so they came up with the idea of doing great murals to make it a reason for visitors to stop. Great shopping here and it is all so different . The murals are all so good . A must see .... More

Interesting to view the history through the fabulous painted murals. Chemainus is a quaint little town. Lots of shops as well, a community theatre to see local talent.

loved the murals and amazed at the work that went into them. Coupled with the Town's vision through revitalization of their downtown. Excellent!

We arrived late in the afternoon and had to leave first thing in the morning so we did not have enough time to fully appreciate these murals. They are amazing and tell the story of the town - we wandered around for about an hour but would have liked to do the full walking trail.
