“Best Local History Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

This was such a delightful surprise, what a great museum. It can easily compare to a large city natural history museum, only on a smaller scale. I was so impressed with the First Nations display and then the history of local logging and fishing was so interesting. Just had a little over 2 hours before closing time, so wished I had come earlier. The films in the little theatre were good, so much local history. Would loved to have been able to spend some time in the gift shop. This place is a must see when coming to Campbell River.

“one of the best local history museums in the world that I have seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

The exhibits are great, -authentic and educational while not the least bit boring, the staff is friendly, there is free wifi and free parking and a great little gift shop that carries wonderful west coast books and original First Nations' art and jewelry.

“Worth a Second, Third, Fourth Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

A fantastic small museum with so much to offer. An excellent First Nations exhibit, and a great eye into life when the first Europeans arrived. A mini cinema with various films from legends to the blowing up of Ripple Rock. Bubbling over with great displays and information.
