“Great Way to Spend a Rainy Afternoon”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

What this museum lacks in space, it makes up for in quality. Excellent First Nations exhibit. The fishing and logging exhibits are interesting too. Always enjoy a few hours at this museum. And the grand kids like it too.

“Local history”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

The museum was smaller than I expected, but the displays and information was great, watching the small film on ribble rock was a highlight along with first nation exhibit

“Very nice museum”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

This museum is about the area of Campbell River and the First Nations who inhabit(ed) this part of Vancouver Island. Really presents interesting things in a fascinating way. Not too big, but very complete. Do not miss the movie about the removal of Ripple rock.

For a small community, this museum has it all - something for everyone. And it doesn't take all day to see the whole thing!
