Beautiful building featuring tidy displays pertinent to the area's early pioneers with a nod to Surrey's indigenous first nation peoples (would have enjoyed more). Includes an area especially for kids.

Took the kid here to learn some local history, since we live nearby. It's definitely an experience, and has some neat history, but there's really no reason to re-visit it. I can't imagine it's interesting enough to be considered a tourist attraction, but it's kind of cool to see for locals, especially of the Cloverdale area.

It's a small museum and a bit pricey for what it is. There are some nice artifacts from Surrey's early days. I did like the indian displays.

Great little museum packed with Canadian history. I took my grandchildren here in 2013 when they were 8 and they loved it. When we first got there they weren't sure due to it being small, but gave me the thumbs up afterwards by saying how interesting and fun it was. It's local history, the changing of times..old cars, old buggies,... More

Went there with the grandparents, children and my nieces. Overall we had good afternoon, but going in a large group was like herding kittens, so not as enjoyable for me....kids enjoyed the free crafts.

View by donation so you can't really complain. On the small side, but interesting non the less. Not sure if they have guides at certain times that might have been more helpful.

A very nice Museum. We really enjoyed the 'fakes and real artifacts' display. There was also a large display of local historical materials.

Went with a 3 year old and a 7 year old and we all had a very good time. We did go on a special day when they had crafts for the kids and that made it especially fun but I think the kids would like it even without the crafts. Go to the front desk and they give scavenger... More

The display of Lego was exciting for my grandkids (5 & 9) We all enjoyed that display and the rest of the museum. The kids enjoyed seeing 'old stuff' from years ago. Good way to spend an hour or two. Donation is appreciated.
