Thank you for visiting! We are happy to hear you enjoyed the museum, and had a chance to learn more about the local Japanese-Canadian community.

See how Steveston was before the economic housing boom. This was a quiet and quaint fishing village and as a young boy i use to ride my bike here to fish.

Welcoming and quaint, this original building is a free taste of what Steveston used to be. Donations accepted, and as they are an actual functioning Post Office, mail a letter, too!

The staff were very helpful and interesting. We did not need accommodation as this was a day trip but there were plenty available. Lots of leaflets for things to do and places to go. Well worth a visit.
