What a great museum. Really informative and shows great respect to and pride in the First Nation exhibits while demonstrating the impact of the European colonisation. Also enjoyed the exhibits and film about Roderick Haig Brown.

Very professional presentations of local and First Nations history along with some really heart rending recollections of the effect of colonialization of the First Nations in BC.

The art works are amazing. Gift shop has a large and varied selection and staff that know their products and in many cases the individual artists who have provided the pieces on offer.

Excellent museum with many interesting historical artifacts. This was also a very educational experience from the detailing of colonialism, and the Indigenous life on Vancouver Island.

I will recommend this museum for anyone visiting Campbell River.

This museum beautifully explains the life of Vancouver Island from before the arrival of the Europeans to present day. The display "Transitions" is especially truthful in presenting the encroachment of the white man on the original inhabitants. Plan to spend at least three hours here is you want to soak in the experience.

Excellent heritage artifacts and historical perspective. First Nations well represented. Cooperation between cultures should be emphasized over conflict.
