Small gift store with a binder of old pictures and cards to purchase with other items. I can not figure out why they have a museum with a door closed and a big sign view with donation. For a city why not show off all your history and just have the donation box available as more people would go inside... More

The White Rock Museum is in the former Great Northern Railway train station on the waterfront and promenade in White Rock. Recently renovated, the museum has lots of artifacts from White Rock's early days as well as the railway. The photographs are especially intriguing as they let us see how this seaside community has changed over the last 130 or... More

The museum is small but has a nice gift shop and brings back memories of old time White Rock - Elvis Presley once stopped here!

Not to many days pass without stopping at the White Rock Museum. The benches out front make for a good comfortable stop while walking the promenade. The ever changing displays inside come and go frequently and over the years the many visits have been very informative and refreshing. I get bored quickly and this is one museum that seems to...

Articles and facts about White Rock history is all in one place. Nice view outside the museum. A plce where u can go crabbing and fishing with once in a while coal train carrier passing by. A place you can alway feel relax away from busy life of the city

Took a step back in time to enjoy the exhibit Play On! Sport and Recreation of Times Gone By. Nice little Museum with a location right off the Promenade in the West Beach. Worth a stop in, the upcoming exhibits look very interesting!

A great place to stop by to learn some of the local history of White Rock. The museum was renovated a few years ago and looks great. Stop by for a visit, its worth a look.

Located on the main strip of White Rock Beach, it is well worth to spend a few minutes in this small museum. Entrance is very reasonable. It has a few good displays and tell about the history of the quaint sea-side town. Kids will like it—they have a "I spy" game card for kids to spot certain items in the... More
