They are a wonderful addition to this small town. A must see. The area is very relaxing although it is busy when the farmers market is taking place on Thursdays. This is also something worth attending.

Young or old, fit or half dead, you can enjoy the murals in Chemainus. The town is easy to walk around in a couple of hours, with the path to all the murals marked clearly on the sidewalks with yellow foot prints. If you get too tired, or don't feel like walking there are horse-drawn buggy tours that can take... More

The murals are masterpieces of art and history but this little town has much more to offer, There are some amazing shops, nice restaurants and cafes, and some beautiful views. There are Horse drawn carriage tours and interesting places to walk. This is the perfect place to spend a few hours of relaxation. We try to do it often

Take a trip down memory lane through the streets of Chemainus There are self guided foot steps on the side walks taking you through the downtown area so you can see all the beautiful murals on the walls of old and new buildings.On Wednesdays there is a really interesting Farmers Market held in the parking lot near the park.

We came to Chemainus for the Murals and we loved it. We took a horse and carriage tour which was great! The girl giving the tour told us so many nice stories about the Murals and Chemainus, really interesting. We did the new town by foot and the old town with the tour. We got this advice because the Murals... More

A logging, mill, fishery support and local commerce centre, Chemainus has a colourful past, and a vibrant present. Two hours by car north of Victoria BC and less than 40 minutes from Duncan, any trip up the island should include time in Chemainus for a 90 minute stroll, an excellent meal at any of half a dozen spots, and a...

http://www.muraltown.com Our bus tour had a coffee stop in Chemainus, B.C. I am so glad we had the opportunity to view the many murals on the walls of the buildings here. There is also a small waterfront park with public restrooms. I highly recommend a visit or a stop here to support the local art community and small town economy.... More

Amazing murals on walls of downtown buildings bring life to an otherwise sleepy town. It is surprising what art can do.

The murals are interesting, easily accessible, well maintained and artistically displayed, with statuary and a small park around the most iconic one of the three chiefs.

I wouldn't drive an hour from Victoria just for the murals, but they are nice and pretty abundant. There aren't that many stores in the area. There's a small waterfront park about a half mile from the murals for the kids to hang out at.
