Definitely worth a stop and a stroll around town overlooking the waterfront. The murals are amazing and a credit to the "little town that did" as they used the murals to rejuvenate the town after the closure of a large sawmill in the early 1980's.

Chemainus is a small town known for their world class murals. It's an interesting way of depicting the history of the area. Various artist came together to do the work. There's also a lot of little shops where you can grab a souvenir and cafe where you can relax, enjoy a cone of ice cream and simply people watch. If... More

Chemainis is a cute town to wander around and view the numerous murals. I recommend getting a free map at the visitor's center so you know the routes to take to see them all. Along the way are lots of cute shops and eateries. We found a great house made candy and ice cream shop as we walked around. If... More

Along with the Totems in Duncan, this is a must see attraction. Tracing the history of the town and the peoples of the area, this is a real gem. even some of the properties the murals are on are a look back in time. We saw 20 of the murals but I believe the number is in the high thirties,... More

This town needed a boost to its business so they began to collect murals depicting the history of their town on exterior walls as available. They now have a good collection and show with footsteps a route you can take. Gives you a good idea of what went on in this area in past years. Also shows the different ethnic... More

On our drive up north we made a stop to see these murals. They are beautiful done, but overall I wasn't impressed. I think I will next time drive further up the coast to the beach areas or something else.

Makes walking through town more interesting. Murals are spread throughout downtown, which is small and very walkable.

We highly recommend taking a carriage ride to see the murals especially if walking is an issue. We rode in the one without a top which allows full access to view the murals. We cannot recall the young lady's name who drove the horse and narrated the tour but she did an outstanding job. She used a mike so we... More
