    Average museum with local history. Clean building with a good location on the water. Halls can be rented here for parties for a reasonable price.

    An excellent museum and venue to hold your event. The Heritage Centre is not only a reflection of the value of our Maritime Heritage but it is a reflection of the Maritime History of our region, right down to the hardwood flooring.

Where to stay in Campbell River

If you choose to stay in Campbell River itself, you'll likely find yourself in a friendly inn or guesthouse overlooking the estuary, where the river meets Discovery Passage. You can get a clearer view of the strait by staying on the coast, on the eastern side of town, where motels look across the water to Yaculta on the other side. Head farther south along Island Highway for even quieter coastal accommodations only a few minutes' drive from the local airport.
