As a visitor to Vancouver Island, my reaction to being told "see the murals in the township of Chemainus" was: Ho-Hum. How wrong was I? What a brilliant idea! How good are these murals? Believe me they are well worth a look. There are lots of them, and some are fantastic. About life, history, people - reflecting emotions, capturing the... More

We were here last year, it was time to return to see the art work displayed in Chemainus! Always have a good time following the yellow foot prints on the sidewalk, which take you to see the fantastic murals! We always enjoy coming to the Christmas store, however it was closed on Monday!

If you are on Vancouver island you need to check out Chemainus. The town has quaint shops, small park areas with sculptures and many murals. Very easy to spend an afternoon strolling around taking the whole experience in. Try the candy store for some special in store made chocolate, or have coffee on one of the many patios.

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.
