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

Inexpensive, entertaining, and educational

For a very small city, less than 40,000 people, Campbell River has a museum it can be proud of.

It's not huge but what it does, it does really well. It cover indigenous history and folklore to the industries that grew up there and how the early European settlers lived.

We've been to bigger cities whose museums didn't evoke the feelings this one did.

Fantastic Museum

The museum is a great visitor destination. Along with a beautiful view of the water from the lobby, the exhibits are great, particularly the Indigenous mask exhibit. The staff have done a good job of sharing the stories of the region.

Great little museum to learn about the history of Campbell River
Sep. 2019
Stopped off here on a rainy afternoon. Wasn't expecting much but was really pleasantly suprized. Great little museum , very well presented displays, interesting information about Campbell River, its first nations, fishing and early settlers. Some of the reproductions of early accommodation were amazing , loved the floating cabin. Well worth a couple of hours to visit.
