The Museum is also the tourist info centre so a good first stop if this is your first visit. They were helpful with local information and the exhibits were interesting.

An outstanding community museum. Many things of local interest as well as a broader range of items. They had an excellent display of British Columbia Provincial Police items.

Considering the size of the District of Sooke and the size of the museum building the displays are excellent. Accolades to all the volunteers.
