A fantastic small museum with so much to offer. An excellent First Nations exhibit, and a great eye into life when the first Europeans arrived. A mini cinema with various films from legends to the blowing up of Ripple Rock. Bubbling over with great displays and information.

If you're interested in the history of Campbell River and his citizens then the Museum is a "must see". Especially stories about the logging and the North American Indian Art are very interesting.

This is a truly wonderful museum, and it's hidden in Campbell River! The curator has done a spectacular job enveloping the history of this magnificent island from early native life, to all of the industry through to the explosion of the deadly Ripple Rock. Not to be missed by anyone keen on learning about this part of the Pacific Northwest.

A great museum, that puts you into the local history, rather than just looking at it!
