“Great stop on the old Island Hwy”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

A must see, even if you're just driving through. Easy access off the old highway, lots of parking. Particularly good on a rainy day! The museum presents the history of First Nations, fishing and logging in a factual way with exhibits you can touch, see, smell and hear. Also a temporary exhibit on the big wildfire of 1938. Be sure to watch the short movie on Ripple Rock.

“worth to visit”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

The museum presents the history (first nations, fishing and logging industry,…) of Campbell River and surrounding area. There is also a temporary exhibit on the forest fires.
I particularly enjoyed that the exhibits were done in a really interesting and beautiful way, with a love to details.

“the little museum that does”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

The Campbell River Museum is a great introduction to the history of this place. It well represents the aboriginal history here, and goes on to the logging, fishing and the very unusual history of the area.It's a great place to spend a couple of hours of rainy or hot afternoon time. The gift shop is beautifully stocked and reasonably priced. The admission price is very reasonable, especially for the locals, its free.
