    Discreet, but I think that a small museum worth a visit and. Admission is adults $ 8 on a high and I was convinced at the exhibit. First Nation Forestry, fishery, World War I, and saw changes in the town, and people hear touch clarity, displayed ingenuity is amazing. It is a compact Digest of the BC Museum in Victoria say about. You can enjoy to have organized into small, tired. I have become a particularly strong first nation, an ingenious culture often expressed in sensory exhibit ".

    This is an excellent stop to learn about the history and economy of the area. Exhibits are as professionally displayed as in large city museums. Nice gift shop. Good value for entrance fee.  more »

    So much to see. The write ups are mostly from a personal perspective but also they have facts, which makes it much easier to read and remember. The displays are well thought out. Although I did find the lighting was kinda dark, but it hasn't stopped me from returning. Also locals are free ( donations are welcomed).

    Decent museum showing history of Campbell River. Can rent rooms for parties. Prices are a bit higher than you'd like to see. Some gift shop items have insultingly high prices.

    No visit to the area should miss this opportunity for learning, either the history of colonialism meeting the First Nations or the storytelling of those people. Well worth the time for people who wish to know more.

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.
