“Great jem!”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

The staff were really friendly and the cost is by donation. The exhibits were really nicely done and of great quality- really surpassed my expectations of what to expect from a little museum in courtenay. There are some scrapbooks upstairs that chronical the history of the locals that could be easily overlooked but are so incredibly interesting! And did I mention the dinosaurs?! This was a great way to spend the afternoon!

“very nice museum”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

the displays were very informative and appealing to look at. It really gave a good insite to the hard work the people of the area were faced with. It inspired my husband to purchase some of the books to read more about the area.
