3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

A good little museum about local history. Museum is free and accepts donations. Gift shop is good with Beachcomber memorabilia.

“A hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Most people don't know that the upstairs of the museum is jam-packed with interesting things. My little one and I have been dropping by every few months since she was 3 for something to do in the afternoons. She loves the butterfly case.

“Amazed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

I have lived in Gibsons for 12 years and had never been to the museum. They had a special event and I decided to take a visit. I was totally suppressed by their exhibits. They have done an excellent job in setting up their displays. I would highly recommend that you visit our museum.

“Museum at Gibsons, Sunshine Coast BC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

What a great way to spend an hour or two!..Staff very friendly and helpful, and being taken back in the past to the first family to land and settle, then the progress of this beautiful coastal
hideaway .
I think the Sunshine Coast , small towns of Gibsons,Sechelt Powell River ,and many more lovley little settlements all the way up to Lund and beyond is Canadas best kept secret, and should be shared:)

“Best museum I have seen in years!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

I have seen a few museums in my day but by far this was the most stuff in a small place that I have ever witnessed. Usually the staff follows you around with that "wicked eye" and there are ropes and banners preventing you from really seeing the exhibits, this is not the case here. We were alone with other visitors, the exhibits were close to see and well labeled. Instead of paying up front not knowing if you will get your money's worth, this museum is actually FREE. Who does free any more? There was; of course, a box for donations, which was pretty full given that they were voluntary and it was May. Awesome place!
