“Worth a quick peek”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

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 two room. I would not make a special effort to go here, but if you are wandering by the pier area, go in.

“Pictorial History of White Rock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Celebrating 100 years of White Rock, there is currently a wonderful display at the Museum and Archives. Admission by donation. There is also a silent auction on many photographs "then and now" Worth a visit.

“Local history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

We visited the museum this past January and found it very informative about the history of the White Rock beach and local area. it was interesting to see the pictures over time showing what the pier and old train station looked like and when you go outside and compare it to what you see today it makes you reflect on the changes that have taken place. Living in White Rock I would recommend a visit to not only visitors to this area but also to residents.

“Very well done”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Tells the story of White Rock in pictures and words. Clean and well presented. Great location next to the ocean. Parking can be a challenge on sunny days
