Always changing, the Emily Carr exhibit last year was wonderful, now the Wildlife Photography exhibition is stunning. Spent two hours visiting with two teenagers. Will return again soon.

Lots of exhibitions from the past (history about Indians and white settlers and everything in between).
They got plenty of replica buildings dated around 1900 (gunsmith, hotel, saloon, china town, coal mine, ...).
You can also learn about the history of the local animals whether they live on land or at sea.
Definitely worth a visit!
But beware, to enjoy everything you have to stay at least 3-4 hours!

Museum was all right. Though informative it needed better organization and more interesting exhibits should be added!
