The entire town of Chemainus is full of such amazing art and talent. The Murals tell the stories of the town of Chemainus as well as the general area, covering logging, fisheries, marine and agriculture, as well as the First Nations stories and contributions. Breathtaking and beautiful throughout town.

As a traveller or local, the wall murals are an absolute delight to see. They are beautifully done and bring a life to the happy little town just off the highway.

A great little town to visit and explore. Must visit the theatre and the gift shop for locally made crafts and art displays.

We heard about this little gem of a town from various people when we asked about places we should not miss while on Vancouver Island and are we glad we learned about this place! Cute little ships of all kinds and the Murals are so well done and tell the history of this part of the world. If you are... More

We have seen murals in several locations but those of Chemainus are the best. The artists were more professional.

Chemainus seemed like a quaint little town that clearly has older areas compared to newer. The old down town could use a little scraping and new paint. We got lost several times due to unclear directions, but worked it out.

A must see for historical and artistic perspective of Vancouver Island, and the art itself is top notch. It is just a really fun place to visit " the little town that could".

Quaint little town has done a good job of re-inventing "the wheel" (even has a waterwheel garden/park)! Murals everywhere! Can be a challenge & pricey to find without the $20 pp carriage tour unless you go to the info Centre and get a map for the walking tour. They have a weekly outdoor market in the summer with cool vendors... More
